MP Who's Married to Her Personal Assistant and Popular Musician

Despite being in active politics as the Meru Woman Representative Kawira Mwangaza is a parliamentarian with a romantic story behind her marriage.

She married popular musician and pastor Robert Murega Rimberia commonly known as Murega Baichu in May 2018 at a colourful wedding in Meru County.

In an August 2019 interview, Murega narrated how his guitar skills attracted Kawira to him and culminated in marriage.

Murega stated that Kawira used to follow and listen to his music during concerts and other events, which brewed the love between them.

"She would go crazy whenever I played the guitar and till today, she likes when I play the guitar even in church,” remarked Murega.

More to the music, the popular musician also indicated that Kawira was attracted to his mode of dressing, with his signature large Panama hats playing a large part.

“Kawira said I looked more handsome in the hat and she always likes seeing me in one,” remarked Murega.

When Kawira announced her clear ambitions to vie for the woman representative position in Meru, her husband was the first to support the move, actively campaigning, to show his unwavering love.

“I love politics but with my wife in politics, I am comfortable and I fancy supporting her in politics,” remarked Murega.

As a further indication of love, the musician even volunteered to become her personal assistant, helping run her office, a move that attracted mixed reactions all over.

“Even though she has government secretaries, I found it very crucial to be her personal assistant since being her man, I know her challenges and what she needs to be successful,” remarked the popular musician.

Together, they run Kamankura Records which turned to Baite Family, encompassing Baite TV and Baite Records.

The two also run the Baite Family Church where they both minister, attracting congregants through the music-filled broadcasted church services.

Murega also indicated that Kawira also serves as his music advisor, helping him to continue spreading his fame and producing hit songs done in the Ameru language.

Kawira won the woman representative position on an independent ticket where she floored the incumbent, Florence Kajuju who vied on a Jubilee ticket.
