Tabitha Karanja is Keroche Breweries Chief Executive Officer (CEO), a liquor company based in Nakuru County.
She is also the current Nakuru Senator.
In 2022, Karanja transitioned from being a corporate guru to becoming the Nakuru Senator. Her successful political journey began by bagging a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket beating five other candidates in the nomination exercise.
Karanja was crowned the August 9 General Election winner after trouncing her nine competitors in the crowded Nakuru Senatorial race.
The Keroche Breweries CEO defeated veterans, including John Mututho, to be declared the winner by the Electoral Independence and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Karanja's win made her the first woman senator from Nakuru County.
Besides her entrance into politics, Karanja fought to save her company, which was on the verge of closure.
She also helped save the careers and jobs of over 400 Keroche employees, which were at risk due to the company closure and battles with the government.
