“I left my comfort zone for discomfort zone. This is a discomfort because I worked for an international organization and I was being paid like an expatriate. I don’t have money for politics but what I have is goodwill, and goodwill is more than money. By contesting senatorial as candidate between 201, 2015 and now, it is based on that goodwill. It is the people that believe in me that have kept me going. When I said mobilise, it is about us telling our people because several of our people are not privileged like us. Let us support the change that we are clamouring for.”
