Life was hell for Isaac Mwaura after he lost Jubilee ticket to vie for Ruiru parliamentary seat. The outspoken politician lost two of his triplets while in the middle of party primary campaigns.
Mwaura’s wife Nelius Mukami gave birth to triplets – two boys and a girl sometimes in January 2017. The former nominated MP who ditched ODM to seek Jubilee ticket for Ruiru constituency, revealed that two of his triplets died during party nominations leaving him with a hospital bill of 11.2 million to clear.
“I went ahead to vie for Ruiru parliamentary seat, sufferred political violence and eventually lost the election. Some people thought that I was down and out. Others even celebrated!!! 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 not forgetting that we were in the middle of party primary campaigns. It was really tough but we kept the faith,” Isaac Mwaura wrote in part.
Just when all hope was lost, Mwaura was redeemed when President Uhuru Kenyatta who nominated him to the Senate under the Jubilee Party via a Kenya gazzette notice.
