Politics in Kenya is always associated with opulence and status and thus politicians strive to showcase this or work towards that.
From classy SUV vehicles to designer clothes and luxurious mansions, it is a fantasy that keeps their followers glued on their daily activities.
On Saturday, January 21 Nakuru Governor Susan Kihika hosted former Senators she served with in the third Senate at her Nakuru, Ngata residence as Kenyans marvelled at the opulence and state-of-the-art mansion she owns.A collage of Nakuru Governor Susan Kihika, former Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, former nominated Senator Millicent Omanga and Makueni Governor Mutula Kilonzo and Murang'a Governor Irungu Kang'ata at Kihika's Ngata home on Saturday, January 21, 2023.Susan Kihika
Through her statement on social media, she revealed that she had hosted her colleagues at her home.
“Friends are relatives you make for yourself! Had a great afternoon hosting my great friends Senators from the 12th Parliament (2017-2022).
