Hamisi Ngutu Mutura – Determinined to change lives

It is hard to believe that the flamboyant bespectacled gentleman was once a matatu tout along Langalanga route. But he’s quick to always admit that he actually was and is a part of his life he’s in fact proud about. That was way back in 2003 after the 2002 general elections when having been displaced from his former home, Hamisi Ngutu Mutura settled at Pondamali in Nakuru.

From Tout …..

From tout, he graduated to a squad driver and conductor but had to go back to his former occupation when his family opened a dispensing chemist at Pondamali and Hamisi was to run it.  Hamisi is a trained pharmacist and had previously been employed at the same capacity.

……. to community leader

Today, however, Ngutu an entrepreneur who runs a private school, St. Dominic’s Academy and is more involved in community service.

As chairman of the Nakuru Analysts, Ngutu together with Patrick Kinyua and Steve Gitukia initiated the mobilizing of resources in aid of Barut primary School special unit. They were able to bring together a group of well-wishers including the Nakuru County Assembly County speaker and were able to donate foodstuffs, learning materials and other basic necessities to the unit that caters for children with various forms of disabilities.
This interaction with the community has revealed to him the various needs of the community and he’s determined to bring change to the residents of Rhoda Ward in Nakuru West Constituency of which he is a resident. To achieve this he has decided to get into politics by seeking to be elected as the Member for County Assembly representing this area.
Top of his agenda for these people is improving the drainage system which has been a problem to the residents for a long time. He says he would also wish to see the residents become self-reliant and every household get an NHIF hospital insurance card.

Hamisi is currently undertaking a degree in Education, Bachelor of Arts at St. Paul’s University, Nakuru. This is in addition to his previous degree in Computer sciences a few years back. Hamisi Ngutu also has a Diploma in Business Management (Projects) from Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) and he is also studying the Kenya Sign Language that he says will enable him to communicate with those with hearing disabilities.

Hamisi is a family man with two children, a girl and a boy.
