The sudden change in the lifestyle of a former legislator has left members of the public in his home-region dazed.

After losing in the last polls, the controversial and vocal politician decided to switch his allegiance to a man considered his political nemesis.

In a span of few months, the former lawmaker bought a new car and started constructing a mansion for one of his wives.

The influential leader he embraced is said to be the main source of the cash. The individual who was known in the past for being tight-fisted when he was in office transformed into a philanthropist overnight.

Recently he sent tongue’s wagging after he donated a gift worth close to Sh1 million to a clergyman.  Many residents now say that it was good for him to flop in the polls so that his life could be transformed.
