Uasin Gishu Senator Professor Margeret Kamar.
Uasin Gishu Senator Professor Margeret Kamar is the current deputy speaker in the Senate.
Despite coming from Uasin Gishu which is the home county of deputy president William Ruto, Professor Kamar has seemingly refused to board the hurstler jet that is porpular in the region.
Could it be because she is the only female Professor in the Senate hence the tendency of having her own independent mind?
