Alice Muthoni Wahome

Alice Muthoni Wahome is a Member of Parliament for Kandara Constituency.

Alice Muthoni Wahome is a Member of Parliament for Kandara Constituency. She was first elected in 2013 and re-elected in 2017. 

Alice attended Karumu primary school for her primary studies and later joined Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls High school and Siakago High School for her secondary studies.

She then proceeded to the University of Nairobi where she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Law. 

The MP has been vocal about the use of police officers to fight politicians in her quest for democracy and freedom of association. 

The Kandara MP is a vocal defender of Deputy President William Ruto and is the chairperson of Inua Mama, a faction group that reportedly drives Ruto's 2022 agenda.

A lawyer by profession, Wahome is a cog in the wheel for the DP's Mt Kenya political forays. She has been touted as one of the potential 2022 running mates for Ruto. 

Wahome was elected by the group, which entails over 40 women leaders, including, her counterparts Gladys Shollei (Uasin Gishu), Wangui Ngirici (Kirinyaga), Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa and Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika.

She argues that Inua mama is all about empowering women socially and economically but not a tool for political advancement. 

The legislator is a champion of health initiatives. She has not spoken over whether she would run for the legislative seat for the third time or whether she would go for a higher seat. 

However, her authoritativeness and leadership sets her apart from her peers.
