A lawyer and prominent blogger Wahome Thuku dissects the Nakuru county Senator Ms Susan Kihika who has been advocating for “Dynasty must fall” narratives that is associated by jubilee wing of Tangatanga or rather the Deputy President William Ruto’s wing.
Lawyer Wahome backdates his narrative from when Susan was born, her family, the school’s she went to and how she became the senator. This is what the Senior blogger Mr Wahome Thuku had to say;
“Susan Kihika was born in Nakuru County in 1974. Her father Kihika Kimani, the patriarch of Kihika Dynasty was a prominent Moi-era politician and businessman. He died in 2004. Susan is one of his 41 children, the sixth child of his his second wife, Alice.
Susan, being from Nakuru royalty attended the prestigious Busara Forest View Academy in Nyahururu and proceeded to Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls’ High School in Nyeri.
In 1992 just as the country was getting its footing in the struggle for multipartism and an economy that had gone to the dogs under the Moi regime perpetuated by the YK92 youth wing, Susan was shipped out to safety in the United States of America.
She was there for a solid 20 (Twenty) years, the era that Kenya went through unprecedented political turmoil.
She joined the University of North Texas, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science.
In 2006, she graduated with a Juris Doctor degree from the Law School of Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, Texas and was admitted to the Texas Bar.
She worked in the public service. Later she left public service and established The Kihika Law Firm in Dallas, Texas.
In 2012, Susan returned to Kenya to try her hand in already well established political atmosphere, worked and accomplished with the blood and life of her age mates. We even had a new constitution for which many of her colleagues in the legal profession had gone to detention and other Kenyans lost their lives.
She was returning to harvest what she had no idea how it was planted. Totally oblivious of what struggle second liberation was all about. In any case her father was part of the problems that Kenyans were struggling to liberate themselves from.
In 2013, she contested the Bahati Constituency parliamentary seat and lost to Kimani Ngunjiri. But being a daughter of the Nakuru dynasty, she had to get a soft landing.
She got the position of Speaker, Nakuru County Assembly. She won the Senate seat in 2017 and she is tipped to win the Gubernatorial one in 2022.
For 20 years, Nakuru mothers had never given birth to anyone who could be a Speaker or a Senator, they had to wait for the girl to fly in from America.
Dynasty must fall indeed.” Wahome Thuku wrote.
