A video of Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika’s stepsisters ostracizing her on camera went viral on Friday, August 5.

“My name is Peris Njoki Kihika, the current senator is my stepsister. I am here to ask you not to vote for her because she has been frustrating me since 2013.
Former Nakuru North MP Dickson Kihika Kimani.
“She uprooted my corn and took me to prison in June 2015, where I spent 16 days. However, the case was dropped,” Njoki said.
Wanjiku, on the other hand, argued that the senator, who wants to oust Governor Lee Kinyanjui in the upcoming elections, is frustrating the family and dragging the wealth of Ksh 600 million among its members.
She claimed that every time the extended family makes a decision, the senator uses her influence to derail the effort.
“Susan has frustrated us as a family and so to this day we have never distributed the wealth. She always interferes. We cannot trust her in leadership because she will frustrate your citizens. We as a family support Governor Lee Kinyanjui,” she said. explained.
