Before joining politics Susan was an established legal practitioner in the United States of America. In this article we highlight her academic journey and professional achievements.[Photo courtesy]

Academic Qualifications.

Susan sat for her Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations at Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls in 1992 before leaving for further studies in the USA. She enrolled for a Political Science and Government degree at the University of North Texas in Denton before proceeding to the Southern Methodist University in Dallas for a Jurist Doctorate Law Degree.[Photo courtesy]

Professional Career

Immediately after her graduation in 2006, Susan got admitted to the Texas State Bar and this enabled her to serve as a prosecutor at the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office. Over the years she rose through the ranks to become the Chief Prosecutor, a position she held for four years before starting her firm, The Kihika Law Firm in Dallas in 2010. She served as an Attorney at the firm for three years before returning home in late 2012 to join the political arena but after failing to clinch the Bahati Parliamentary seat she managed to beat her competitors, becoming the first speaker of Nakuru National Assembly.[Photos Courtesy]
