Nominated Member of Parliament Isaac Mwaura has revealed that the President elect , Uhuru Kenyatta, handed him a lifeline when he lost two of his triplets.

Mwaura said that he was vilified and called names over his decision considering that he had been nominated by the party leader Raila Odinga to parliament.

“I was vilified, called names, expelled from ODM party while others were spared....and I was insulted greatly including using the condition of albinism. I went ahead to vie for Ruiru parliamentary seat, suffered political violence and eventually lost the election. Some people thought that I was down and out. Others even celebrated!!!” Stated Mwaura.

He added that he and his spouse, Nelius Mukami, lost two of their triplets and were left with a Sh11.2 million hospital bill.

“Mukami and I even lost two of our triplets (a boy and a girl) and we were left with only one son and a hospital bill of 11.2 million to clear. It was really tough but we kept the faith,” Mwaura added

It was then that he disclosed that Kenyatta saved him from the political oblivion by nominating him to the senate a year later.

“Exactly a year later on 25th August 2017, President Uhuru Kenyatta has nominated me to the Senate under the Jubilee Party via a Kenya gazette notice…There is a GOD in heaven and I know He never lets down his own…Thanks to all those who have believed in me and who have prayed for and with me,” reiterated the former legislator
