24-year-old Cynthia Jepkosgei Muge is the newly elected MCA of Kilibwoni ward, Nandi County, Kenya.
She ran as an independent candidate because she could not afford the cost of her party’s nomination form.
She shocked many in the Jubilee Party stronghold after she emerged victorious with 8760 votes defeating her closest competitor Wilson Kiptanui of Jubilee who garnered 8354 votes.
“I took a chance as an Independent candidate and won after a difficult penniless campaign,” Muge told journalists.
The University of Nairobi graduate attributed her victory to low key issue-based campaigns that directly targeted voters in their homes as well as her determination despite multiple challenges.
Her friends also lent her a helping hand by using the social media, especially Facebook, to solicit votes.
Muge has a Bachelor’s degree in Planning, City/Urban, Community and Regional Planning from the University of Nairobi.
