During most weekends, members of Parliament (MPs) literally move from one function to another in their Constituencies, especially now that the 2022 general polls are less than a year away.

Some of the common functions they attend are fund raisers, commonly known as Harambee so as to raise funds for various courses.

However, what may be not known by most Kenyans is the fact that Members of Parliament get overwhelmed by invites, because one has to have money to attend a Harambee. With the elections just around the corner, MPs must put their best feet forward when invited, which means saying no is out of the question.

This has been highlighted by Suba North Member of Parliament Millie Mabona, who has been invited to 31 fundraisers this coming weekend.

"This weekend I have been invited to 31 harambees in my constituency. All my friends who wish to support can inbox," the MP posted on facebook. She said that last weekend, she held 15 Harambees, mostly in places of Worship. 

"Last weekend we had 15 as follows: Kirambo SDA, Kasgunga, Rehema Roho, Kasgunga, Kibanga SDA, Lambwe, Sienga SDA Rusinga, Dwele Sabath School Gembe, Churches Lianda Rusinga.

Nyota Za Baraka Roho Mfangano, Baptist Church Obalwanda Gembe, Ongoro Kamreri ACK Gembe, Kaugege Full Gospel Kasgunga, St. Cecilia Catholic Rusinga, Winam Roho Rusinga, Ponge Boda Boda Gembe, Slow but Sure Women Gembe, Ambassador Okeyo Educational Foundation Rusinga," she added.

Harambees are expected to officially end during the first week of December, ahead of the 2022 elections.
