    "I will do all within my powers to raise resources towards the control efforts in Kenya from all sectors of the economy," said Christopher Getonga in his acceptance speech.

    Quarcoo joins Kisumy County First Lady Dorothy Nyong'o, Beatrice Maingi, Eva Muthuri, Issac Maluki, Matilu Mwau, Jacinta Wasike and Joyce Momanyi.

    PQ, as he is also known, is the founder and CEO of Radio Africa which owns radio stations, a national newspaper and digital products.
