Westlands MP Hon Tim Wanyonyi is slowly shaping up to be one of the most powerful figures in the Kenya Political landscape. His humble demeanor not withstanding, his visibility, likability and popularity are glowing every single day.
Despite taking over the reigns of Westlands from the outspoken Fred Gumo in 2013, he has maintained a soft spoken personality. On the contrary, he is a great communicator with his constituents whom he passionately engages on all issues.
Westlands development originates and revolves around him. All hopes, cheers,disasters and despairs are cast to him. Through his passion and compassion, he practically finds solutions to the challenges his constituents face. His landslide reelection win in the 2017 election did not come as a surprise. He earned it.
Being soft spoken, considerate and pragmatic has endeared him to the public.He is a good listener on suggestions and accepts feedback. Additionally, he expresses his ideas and directives clearly while taking their needs into consideration.
Importantly, besides being soft spoken he has stood firm with his people on issues affecting them. For instance, he has advocated for the reclaiming of several grabbed public lands from the hands of rich tycoons. Lastly, he is a role model who leads by example. He is calm and collected while demonstrating his commitment to getting things done through his actions.
