As the political mood takes shape in Kenya, many political realignments are expected in the near future. Quite a good number of new entrants are associating themselves with veterans for purposes of riding on their backs for endorsements. However, Peninah John Methu has taken a totally different route.

Fast-forward, John Muhia Methu vied for Nyandarua senatorial position in the year 2017 when he was fresh from college under Dr. Alfred Mutua's Maendeleo Chap Chap party. During that time, his campaigns were badly smeared on the guise of lacking experience to hold and perform in any office. However, John took it positive and campaigned on the platform of lacking the experience to steal public resources. In the end, he lost the elections but the resolve to remain relevant stayed with him.
John Methu has been traversing the whole of Nyandarua County in the capacity of the personal assistant of the speaker of the county assembly of Nyandarua. In all his assignments, he has never slept in class. He has constantly kept the current senator on check as he popularizes his candidature for the year 2022.

In as much as he is eyeing the same position in the year 2022, he has constantly maintained a good relationship with the current senator as he plays clean politics with the aim of oustering him late next year. His endearing demeanor coupled with polished oratory skills has clearly made him the darling of many in his county.

Lately, he has been seen with the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya in different functions across the nation. Political pundits have pointed out a possibility of the two working together. This they say, will be an added advantage to him since a majority of the people in this region are fully behind the Deputy President's presidential bid in next year's election. As it stands, John Methu is sagely pushing his own cards correctly.
