Former Kibwezi MP the late Kalembe Ndile may have died but his legacy still lives on. Kalembe’s son Daniel Ndile has joined politics, taking after his late father. Danie’s inspiration, he says, comes from his father, a man he admired since he was a child.
“My father came from nothing to something. He basically started from nowhere, he came from a poor background but in the end he achieved a lot. This has encouraged me knowing I can achieve anything,” he told The Nairobian.
The fourth year student pursuing a degree in Information Technology at Daystar University said his father’s demise prompted him to go for the Mavoko MP seat.
“Before my father passed on I wanted to run for Member of County Assembly seat. After his demise my friends and my supporters proposed I vie for the Mavoko constituency top seat,” said Daniel.
The 23-year-old said at the top of his political agenda is to improve infrastructure, address insecurity and support youth talents.
“I live in Mavoko and the residents have complained about the poor drainage system, garbage and poor roads. If elected I will fix all that,” Ndile said.
He encouraged the youth to vie for elective seats because they have the opportunity to go for leadership. Daniel said he will announce his political party during the launch of his campaigns in January 2022.
