The former Nairobi boss drifted from contesting for city hall apex position to drum support for Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
She was instrumental in ensuring that the former prime minister ascends to the country’s top seat in August battle. Unfortunately, Mr Odinga lost bid to Kenya Kwanza Alliance candidate William Ruto after garnering 6,942,930 votes against the latter’s 7,176,141 votes of the total votes cast.
Mrs Kananu opted to take a break from active politics and ventured into farming as well as running other private businesses.
“I have decided to venture into farming and take up other private businesses for now. Politics is gone, and it high time for the leaders that were elected into various positions to work for people regardless of their voting pattern” Kananu said.
Kananu is actively cultivating crops and rearing poultry at her farm.
Kananu join Sonko for burial of Jackline Kiambi.
Barely a month ago, the two former Nairobi bosses facilitated the airlifting of the body of Jackline Kiambi after staying for six months in Saudi Arabia with no trace in a mortuary.
She asked president William Ruto’s government to implement policies between the ministry of foreign affairs and Saudi Embassy that aims at curbing the increased death rates among Kenyans who go out of their ways to seek green pastures in foreign land.
“Today we laid JACKLINE KIAMBI to rest in Kanyakine after staying for six months in Saudi Arabia with no trace in a mortuary. It’s very unfortunate our sisters and brothers go to look for greener pastures outside the country and come back dead” she said.
“We seek the indulgence of his Excellency President William Ruto to help solve ths issue through the ministry of foreign affairs and Saudi Embassy to make sure we are able to trace and have good relationship with foreign countries” Kananu added.
