Mercy Mokeira is by all means the most visible model among all the 75 participants of Miss World Kenya competitions. In fact, she is even more visible than Ms Roshanara Ebrahim, the winner of the beauty pageant, which was held last year.
Ms Mokeira who represented Nyamira County has been to both national and high end international events graced by top models and world leaders.
Mokeira, a lawyer by training, has openly declared her ambition to be a political leader in the near future but that has not hindered her from growing her career in the fashion industry.
In the murky world of politics, vital contacts are necessary for survival. In this regard, Ms Mokeira paid a courtesy call to Nyamira County Governor H.E. John Nyagarama in his office where they had a lengthy discussion on the projects she had initiated in the county. They also talked at length of the possible ways the county government could upscale such activities.
After the meeting, Governor Nyangarama, Mokeira together with other officials from the county government proceeded to the governor’s residence for lunch. It is at his residence that the governor was gifted an office portrait made of soap stone.
The governor appreciated the kind gesture from Ms Mokeira and promised to support her in her projects within the county.
