“Si mumeskia Senator wetu anataka kiti ya Ugavana?anatosha ama hatoshi…na sasa Wamama tukiinua mama si tuinue kijana pia….Natosha ama sitoshi? (You have heard our Senator is going for the gubernatorial seat in Nakuru and as we empower a womena let us do so for the youth..Am I capable or not?” stated Mburu amidst applause from the crowd.
The Vocal MCA has positioned himself in the branded Team Tangatanga and is always seen to drunm support for Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika’s political ambition as well as that of the Deputy President William Ruto.
