An MCA in Western Kenya is the talk of the county over his seemingly bottomless pockets. 

The first term MCA has presided over several high profile harambees, where he donates over Sh200, 000, eclipsing seasoned politicians including the area MP.

Over the weekend, the MCA gave Sh500, 000 at a school fundraising. 

Many people are wondering where he gets the money from.

Nyanza MP warms up to cabinet secretary

An MP from Nyanza who has been a vocal critic of a Cabinet Secretary was a surprise guest in the CS’s office.

The MP allied to a rival faction within the ruling Jubilee was part of a delegation from the CS’s region that went to pay a courtesy call to the powerful man and to push for certain development projects.

The young legislator -who had made it his duty to fight the ministry - was forced to eat a humble pie and beg for projects for his constituents.

He consequently termed his previous sentiments as mere politics and nothing personal.

The development has left the MP conflicted given that the said CS is a perceived enemy of a top Jubilee leader he is allied to.

The lawmaker is said to be worried of losing one of his source of harambee monies since his move could severe his links with his benefactor.
