Nairobi’s Future in Safe Hands: Namachanja Khapoya Vows to Fight for the People

by Namachanja Khapoya


It has been a while, and I hope you are doing well. The task ahead of me is not an easy one, and it requires thorough preparation. First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude to God for sustaining me thus far. Last year, I ran for the Nairobi Senatorial position as an Independent candidate, with only a month remaining until the general nominations. My decision to run was driven by the need to ensure my survival. At that time, my life was in danger due to my involvement with Burundi Asylum seekers in Kenya, who were being hunted by President Evariste Ndayishimiye of Burundi. The situation was complicated, and remaining silent was not an option. As the Chairman of Youths For Ruto Kenya, I coordinated this operation, which involved numerous related challenges. I would like to express my appreciation to the Deputy President, who was then the President, for providing me with support and cover during that time.

My survival has been a strategic endeavor. In less than 30 days, I managed to gather the names and ID copies of two thousand supporters. It was a chaotic process, but unfortunately, my sponsor abandoned me at the last minute, making it impossible for me to get on the ballot. Nevertheless, the level of intelligence sophistication displayed by the National Intelligence Service was remarkable. The NIS can attest that among the Senatorial candidates gazetted for Nairobi County, I was one of the most astute. I apologize if it seems like I am boasting; that is not my intention.

Since June 2021, I have kept a low profile and remained indoors. Although things have been secure, they have not been normal. In fact, international media visited my workplace seeking an interview. However, my boss fled, leaving me dumbfounded. I was unable to think clearly and ended up giving the reporters my personal contact information to reach me outside of work. My thoughts were scattered, and I had to lock myself in my office to regain focus. In my own words, I can confidently say that I am ready to serve. The people of Nairobi should trust me to be their representative in the government. What do I stand to gain by wanting it all? Our progress is hindered by mediocrity, which can be eliminated. Corruption can be uprooted or significantly reduced. We yearn for a clean system, and we must infuse it with integrity. I am the vaccine, the solution for Nairobi. Together, let us shape Nairobi, and the rest of Kenya will follow. It is time for upright individuals to step forward and be counted. Sifuna has had his fair share; his time is up. Mr. Sifuna could consider running as the Senator for Bungoma, but I assure you that Senator Wakoli is a formidable opponent. My allegiance lies with the people of Kenya, not Mr. Odinga or anyone else. The interests of the people are my top priority. I firmly believe that we can ensure proper service delivery in the government and all related offices. I have strong faith that our law enforcement officers can conduct themselves with decency and refrain from engaging in corrupt practices at any given time. A government for the people, by the people, is a government that serves the people’s agenda. As the Senator, I will ensure that this becomes a reality. This is just the beginning of a beautiful story. Let us embark on this journey together, taking our time to plan and execute the best strategies. May God guide our way.

Thank you.

Regards, Namachanja Khapoya Nairobi Senator Designate
