Erick I. Matsanza

Erick Matsanza is a Development Conscious Leader ready to empower the youths in rural communities through dialogue and collaboration. "The probability that we may fail in struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just."

I believe that local governments in Kenya are close to the people and places. County Assembly Representatives are expected to be on the frontline, delivering quality services to people and providing leadership in their communities. I believe that a County Assembly Representative can place-shape, influencing the type of community and quality of life in an area.

I am aspiring to become the County Assembly Representative in Lugari, Kakamega County, Western Kenya. Committed to bringing change in the way the people of Lugari Community and beyond are lead. All am asking from Lugarians is to give me a chance to provide the kind of leadership that will bring development in the area. I have come to realize that in order to truly improve the lives of people in communities, it would take not just a change of guard at the local levels, but change in the politics of Lugari and its leadership. I believe in the ability to unite people around a politics of purpose, that which puts solving the challenges that the people face everyday ahead of partisan issues.
