Edwin Sifuna Narrates How He Carried A Bed To Nairobi To Start Life


Orange Democratic Movement Secretary General Edwin Sifuna has narrated how he travelled to Nairobi with a bed when he was about to join college.

Sifuna who studied La at the University of Nairobi says that before he came to Nairobi, he had heard many stories of how people slept on the floor when they started life.

He narrated to Ghetto Radio’s Breakfast Show how he had vowed that he was not going to seep on the floor.

“I had been told stories of how people slept on the floor when they came to Nairobi, but one thing I told myself was that I was never going to sleep on the floor,” he narrated.

“So I had this small hustle back at home that fetched me some money, so I used the money I had made to buy a bed worth Ksh. 3,000,” he said.

“When I got to the bus stop, they decided to cut my bed into half so that it could fit the bus for transportation,” he hilariously recalls.

The lawyer then proceeded to tell how he got his first job as a legal officer at Supa Loaf Company earning Ksh. 40,000.

At some point, I had to double up as the HR after the HR of the company resigned.

“You know this person was earning approximately Ksh. 90,000 but they made me take up the job with the same Ksh. 40,000 I was earning as a legal officer,” he said.

Overwhelmed by his brother’s school fee at USIU, Sifuna then quit the job after his boss refused to increase his pay.

He later got another job at an advertising company and was offered Ksh. 150,000 but then left to start he own advertising firm.

Sifuna who once declared himself the ODM Secretary General says that he joined ODM after Anyang’ Nyong’o called over an article he had written.

He however rubbished reports that he is dynasty hence his occupation of the lucrative seat.

“I worked hard to get here. People think I was dynasty but I am not. I worked so hard to get here,” he stated.
