Is Nakuru MCA being nurtured to take slot among DP Ruto’s lead point men?

Youthful Naivasha’s Lakeview Ward MCA Karanja Mburu has proven that indeed politics is all about spotting opportunities and running away with them.

From the just famous Thursday’s Sugoi meeting for Kikuyu leaders from Rift valley, the first time Jubilee MCA proved to be a smart politician.

This was evident through the mobilization exercise where despite the other MCAs being given only 5 slots for those attending the Sugoi meeting from their respective Ward, MCA Karanja was given the privilege of having 51 persons from the larger Naivasha.

This was made possible after Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri who was tasked with mobilizing people for the Sugoi meeting further tasked MCA’s to help him carry out the mandate.

According to sources at the meeting, the youthful MCA seems to be enjoying a near cordial relationship with DP William Ruto and his handlers.

The MCA, his Kabazi counterpart Peter Mbae, Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri and Senator Susan Kihika were among the leaders who mobilized the most numbers of people to the meeting.

The vocal MCA who has declared his interest in the Senators position, has of late been a regular at meetings presided over by DP Ruto where he has been given a platform to be among the speakers.

This has left many residents asking whether the MCA is being nurtured to take position among DP Ruto’s lead point men in Nakuru County for the 2022 general elections.

In his address during the Inua Mama meeting Nakuru edition 3 months ago that was attended by several Legislators among them the current Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, the MCA stated that he will be going for the Senatorial seat to serve the people of Nakuru better.

“You have heard our Senator is going for the gubernatorial seat in Nakuru and as we empower women let us do so for the youth.Am I capable or not?” he posed.

The Nakuru Senatorial seat is currently being held by Senator Susan Kihika who has also declared interest in Nakuru Gubernatorial seat come 2022.

Mburu trounced Simon Wanyoike Wanango in the 2017 general elections. He is currently rated as the most vocal ward representative in the Nakuru County Assembly.

The many bills and motions he has sponsored have seen him earn respect of Nakuru residents.Among the Bills he has sponsored include one aimed at establishing a disaster management fund.

He is also the brains behind the opening up of the Lake Naivasha corridors after he sponsored a motion on the same. He has also sponsored a bill that saw the digitization of building plans in Nakuru County.

The recent motion he sponsored was on NHIF which will see the less privileged in Nakuru County enjoy free National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) medical cover.
