BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,23RD DEC,2020-Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday held a meeting with Msambweni Constituency grassroots leaders led by the newly-elected MP Feisal Bader at his Karen residence in Nairobi County.
Also present at the meeting were MPs Khatib Mwashetani (Lunga Lunga), Nixon Korir (Lang’ata) and former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru.
The DP said the Msambweni by-election opened a new chapter in Kenyan politics.
“It is no longer about the big name that we carry. Not the people in power that we are connected to. It is about our hard work, commitment and how we address the issues and aspirations of the ordinary people,” Ruto said.
Bader was on Tuesday sworn-in as a Member of Parliament days after clinching the seat.
The short swearing-in ceremony was presided over by National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
Bader who contested as an Independent candidate trounced Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) candidate Omar Boga after garnering 15,251 votes against Omar’s 10,444.
Bader said he will focus on completing the late MP Suleiman Dori’s agenda.
