The Mumias East legislator Peter Salasya has been at the center stage showing a high level of discipline and respect to both locals and friends across Kenya.
Being nurtured in a humble background with Christian dictates, he has kept the faith even in behavior as far as respect is concerned. Furthermore, residents applaud his continued good character before, during, and after campaigns. This has not been the case before.
Born on January 15, 1989, Mr. Salasya is the second last-born child in a family of seven children
The little-known Salasya vied for the seat on a DPAK party ticket and garnered 12,140 votes to win the Mumias East race while Mr. Wamatsi of ANC came second with 9,043 votes while Dr. Mapwoni only managed 5,118 votes.
He attended Shianderema Primary School up to 2005 when he sat for his Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) before joining Lubinu Boys High School.
The unfortunate thing is that his father John Salasya died in 2007 when the now MP-elect was in Form Two.
He thereafter joined Egerton University and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. During funeral functions, he has been at the forefront of condoling with the bereaved by giving them both material and emotional support.
During campaigns due to his poor background and financial muscles, he decided to knock door to door in every household looking for votes.
The Mumias East legislator has expressed utmost bromance with friends and leaders across the country. This has been perceived as a scheme to woe friends to his home turf and bring the needed development to his area of jurisdiction. Leaders have kept the bondage untouched and are ready to work together for the better of the country.
