The reigning Miss World Nyamira County, Mercy Mokeira has hinted at joining politics. In a televised interview at KTN hosted by Betty Okari, Miss Mokeira said that time was ripe for her to make a difference in the society through an influential position most probably in a political office. She said her preference is to be a Member of County Assembly (MCA) in Nyamira County.
She confirmed this through her facebook account when she asked “MCA tunaye ama hatuna?” A question which she got very many positive answers.
We suspect the political bug bit her in one of the events for the beauty queens attended by CORD Leader Raila Odinga.
Miss Mokeira has for the past one year been involved in various charity events both in her home county and Nairobi. Her programmes in Nyamira County aims at alleviating the suffering of the most vulnerable and marginalized members of the society.
It would be a major boost to women and youth empowerment if Mokeira is elected an MCA in Nyamira County.
