When God says yes! EALA MP Kanini Kega flaunts new car

Outspoken politician Kanini Kega has flossed with his new ride.

Dressed in a navy blue suit and a flowered tie, the East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP looked sharp beside his new machine, a Lexus LX 570.

The vehicle is similar to one recently acquired by President William Ruto and is said to cost between Sh10 -15 million.

The Lexus LX 570 is the flagship SUV of Toyota’s luxury brand and hosts electronic four-wheel-drive features that reportedly makes it quite the mountain goat on the rough road.

The vehicle can carry up to eight passengers at any given time and features among other a standard all-wheel drive, advanced electronic off-road systems, power-folding third-row seats, and adjustable-height air suspension.

LX 570 is an eight-cylinder (V8) 5,700cc petrol engine and weighs approximately 2,600 kilograms.

Prior to his election as EALA MP, Kega served as Kieni lawmaker for two terms before unsuccessfully seeking to defend his seat in the August 2022 polls.

He was elected as EALA MP after garnering 197 votes behind Kennedy Musyoka (son to Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka) who led with 262 votes and Raila Odinga’s daughter, Winnie Odinga who came second amassing 247 votes.

Last week, President Ruto handed himself a new official ride, 100 days after ascending to power. The vehicle estimated to be about Sh20 million was unveiled when he was gracing the Administration Police parade at Embakasi, Nairobi county.

Kenyan politicians are among the best paid in the world inclusive of their travel and other allowances totalling millions of shillings each month.
