  • Newly elected Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Ken Ng’ondi has recounted days he played music in a club in Nairobi's Pipeline area, next to a church.

    Speaking on Sunday, October 2 in Embakasi, Ng’ondi reflected on his journey in church stating that he was once a DJ at Makuti Bar which was adjacent to the Redeemed Gospel Church.

    “Reflecting on my life as Ken Ng'ondi, maybe just 2 per cent or 1 per cent of you know me from 1993, just a section of you but we started this journey with my brother pastor Brown before he became a Bishop, it is quite interesting that the church was bordering Makuti Bar.

    Some of you embrace it because it has a red carpet. My first time joining Redeemed Gospel it had murram on the floor and my first contribution in this church I gave when I was playing disco. I was being called Deejay Las Vegas,”

    The Nairobi Speaker in his thanksgiving speech also noted that he will respect the rule of law and the standing orders of the house when adjudicating his duties

    “I am much alive to the fact that that is a house of debate and under normal circumstances, there will always be conflicting interests and differences in opinion, but at the end of the day you must make a ruling as prescribed in the constitution and as provided in the standing orders,”

    Ng'ondi was declared Nairobi speaker after he won the second round of the election, bagging 68 votes, beating Hassan Robow who manged 55 votes.

    He further reflected on the sermon of the day saying that anyone can become who they want to be depending on what they want to achieve in life.

    Ng’ondi also stated that he will ensure his unifying factor is felt on both the majority and minority sides of the assembly by giving members an equal and fair chance to articulate issues that affect Nairobi residents.

    The newly elected speaker further noted that he is dedicated to serving the people of Nairobi regardless of their political affiliations.

    He said he will support and work with the current governor Johnson Sakaja to deliver to the people of Nairobi County.
