Before diving into politics, the ambitious man was a student at the Egerton University. As a poor man all he had was this big dream of changing his ward and the only way he could have achieved this is to get into a leadership position where he can be take care of his village men.

The start wasn’t easy and looking at our polical campaign set up where people expect you to give them something before lending you their ears. Nene didn’t have anything to offer apart from the promises and hope. Many people didn’t take him serious  but he kept feeding them his agenda day by day and slowly people started buying his ideas.

One of the things that Nene ignored was the kind of campaign his worthy and rich competitors were doing. Poverty was his only fear and he knew there was no loss in trying and he was lucky to clinch the seat

The Campaign Journey

In Kenyan political campaign history, Nene’s story broke the record year back people treked for long distances selling their agendas and some used bicycle, those are uncommon stories you can get in campaigning history of Kenya. However, using a donkey as the main campaining trail was on another level.

Prior to getting the donkey Nene had tried to use a bicycle but in his ward you can’t avoid hilly places and this became a challenge for him. One of his close friends offered him his donkey together with a cart “mkokoteni” to use it as a campaign trail.
