The First Person from The Kalenjin Community To Be Elected As An MP In Nairobi Since Independence

Nairobi is not your ordinary city as it is cosmopolitan, meaning that people from different: tribes, races and even religious groups settle here.The county is also a region by itself and the smallest one in Kenya for that matter.

There are many constituencies in Nairobi, Lang'ata being one of them.This constituency is famous all over the world as it has one of the finest posh estates- Karen.

Hon Raila Odinga served as the MP from 1992 to 2012.He was succeeded with Hon Joash Olum who was a member of ODM in 2013 general elections.Unfortunately for ODM, in 2017 a member of the Jubilee Party defeated their candidate in the parliamentary race.

He is none other than Generali Nixon Kiprotich Korir.We all know his as Ruto's pointman in Nairobi County.The youthful politician will go down in the books of history as the first person from the Kalenjin community to be elected as a Member of Parliament, not only in Lang'ata but also the larger Nairobi region.
