KNOW YOUR MP

The Kenyan political scene is often associated with a flamboyant display of wealth and glamorous living.
However, there are a few humble MPs who continue to demonstrate that leadership is not synonymous with wealth.
Here is a list of 5 MPs who live a humble life:
1. Irungu Kang’ata
Leading this list is the Kiharu MP who drives a Toyota Ist and one whose rural home does not have a fence.
The youthful MP owned a Toyota Prado before he became an MP but later donated it for use by his constituents in weddings and other community events.
“Good leaders interact to get a feel for what people go through. They share their ideas and problems, then you figure out solutions,” Kangata explained his simple lifestyle.
2. Nelson Gaichuhie
Subukia MP Nelson Gaichuhie is not a fan of media attention and this allows him to walk comfortably in the streets of Nairobi.
He occasionally walks from Parliament buildings to the chaotic Taveta lane near the Kenya National Archives where he takes a matatu to his Eastlands home.
