With less than 12 months remaining before next year's general elections, politicians from different regions have been drafting strategy plans ahead of the highly anticipated polls. 

Among the strategic changes that have been witnessed in the last few days include leaders swearing affidavits to include their nicknames as part of their official names. 

The leaders are keen to ride on the popularity that has been generated through nicknames. Among those who have changed their names include 2022 hopeful Wanjiru Chege who has officially changed her name to Maitu which translates to Mother in Agikuyu language. The name is meant to align with her campaign slogan 'Maitu Ndecanjagio' which means you cant replace your mother. 

Kiharu politician Karanja Mburu had added the name Wamatangi to his ID recently as he looks to ride on the popularity gained through his philanthropic work of distributing water tanks in the area. He is looking to unseat current Mp Ndidi Nyoro. 

Water principal secretary Joseph Irungu Wairagu has also changed his name to Wairagu wa Mai which means Wairagu of Water as he looks to replace Governor Mwangi wa Iria in Muranga County. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
