Kabazi Ward MCA Dr.Peter Mbae has attributed the success that led to him being awarded Topscore Leadership Award from Mizani Africa to various 5 pillars of Kabazi Transformation Model.

The MCA through a statement to newsrooms, highlighted the 5 pillars which include:

  1. Intensive Public participation exercise that he conducted across the Ward immediately after swearing in to identify the needs.
  2. Prioritization of needs into 5 agendas of water, infrastructure, health, education and agribusiness and breaking implementation into 5 years.
  3. Use of networks and partnerships including Ward kitty, County headquarters, national government, Kabazi Professionals and friends of Kabazi and other organizations in and out of the country to address the needs.
  4. Publishing an own self-assessment annual report as a tool of self-audit and annual work plans.
  5. Being grounded in core values of honesty, hard work, sacrifice, openness, accountability and fear of God.

Dr.Mbae, who has passion for service to the electorates, is among the few learned figures in Nakuru County.

Though many consider the position of an MCA as low end and a reserve of known village guys who can identify every member of all the homesteads with ease, after spending time with them in Barazas or during other village activities, that is not the case for Peter Mbae – the Kabazi MCA.

Mbae holds a PhD in Peace and Conflict Studies at the Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, Kakamega.

The MCA who is also a close associate of Deputy President William Ruto has already declared interest in the Subukia Parliamentary seat come 2022.

In an Interview Mbae revealed that the Award is a plus to his ambition for the Subukia Constituents in terms of service delivery.

“The Award is a clear indicator that we are on the right path and that we can be entrusted with even greater things” he said in a phone interview with this writer on Thursday.
