“Nikiwa mdogo nilitaka kuwa pastor” – Peter Salasya confesses

The Member of Parliament for Mumias East, Peter Kalerwa Salasya, also known as PK Salasya, recently discussed his goals while attending college.

Preaching was one of the MP’s greatest dreams, he revealed with a smile.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua was present when he made this revelation during a speech he was giving in public at Pwani University in Kilifi County.

Egerton University alumnus Mr. Salasya related anecdotally an incident that occurred during his 2011 academic tenure.

“When I joined Egerton University in 2011, a lecturer spent an hour talking to first-year students about their aspirations. When it was my turn, I said I wanted to be a pastor or a leader. Everyone burst into laughter,” Salasya said with a chuckle.

Salasya, a first-term MP elected in 2022 under the Democratic Action Party – Kenya (DAP-K), emphasised his determination to pursue his political ambitions despite considering preaching as a career initially.

“After university, I taught at a college, earning a meager salary of 10,000 shillings per month. At times, when things were going well, I could earn 13,000 shillings,” he said.

But his passion remained in politics.

“In 2022, I decided to try politics, and I succeeded in running for the position of MP,” Salasya said, urging students at Pwani University to pursue their dreams and aspirations wholeheartedly.

The MP is an online user who shares his humor on social media platforms.
