Youthful politician Wickliffe Ngoti is seemingly gaining popularity in his home ward, courtesy of his service leadership and commitment to seeing a better Wan’gchien’g ward.
The decision to make an entry into politics he says was as a result of the hard life he went through as a teen considering he was coming from a poor family and had passion for transforming lives in his society.
“Being brought up in the ghetto hoods, the challenge was walking for a long distance to attend my primary classes and since I was from a poor family my parents were not able to buy me the basic but most important learning materials.” He said.
During the 2007 general elections when he felt and saw there is no sanity in the electoral body systems, he had to think as a hero to fight for the community, for their votes to count each and every time they go to the poll.
His mother was very much worried about him changing his career to join politics but they have now embraced it after seeing how people have been working with him in the course to a transformed society.
Ngoti’s academic journey.
Wickliffe did his primary school at Kinyanjui road then Gichagi primary school in Nairobi before proceeding to Oriwo Boys High School in karachuonyo where he did his KCSE. He thereafter joined Kenya Utalii College and did Diploma in hospitality management before proceeding to University of Nairobi where he is currently pursuing Bachelor’s Degree in Tours and travel management.
On the issue of ODM party nomination which has largely affected most gift timers,Ngoti who is a life member of the party said that he is working very closely with the electorates whom he said he trust will propel him to the next level of leadership.
“I have not set my mind in loosing in our primary nominations since am working very close with my electorates whom I have trust in will propel me to the next level of leadership” Mr. Ngoti said in an exclusive interview with The Mt Kenya Times newspaper.
His position on Building Bridges Innitive (BBI)
The question as to whether he is supporting the proposed constitution amendment or not has an obvious answer as you may think.
One of the reasons why Mr. Ngoti is supporting the document because it’s bringing devolution very much closer to the common mwananchi by the factor of county allocation.
It will bring an end to the war of the winner takes it all thus peace will prevail. The outcome then is the growth of the economy.
