When she declared her bid to run for the sit her parents thought she was joking since they are just common farmers who can’t afford much apart from basic needs. In most cases, politics are normally associated with well-off individuals, and her parents thought it was impossible for their daughters to thrive in such a field.
Coming from a humble beginning she didn’t have enough material to run her campaign and all she had was only the agenda. Boda Boda riders from her area fell in love with her agenda and they became part of her dream, together with these riders she managed to sell her idea beyond her village, and slowly her county men noticed her brilliant ideas.
