Elijah Kanyi for Mathare MP


Can Elijah Kanyi a young and determined Kenyan win an MP post in the slums of Nairobi? Everything about 27 year old Elijah Kanyi makes him an unlikely candidate for parliament in Nairobi. If he wins he will be the youngest MP since independence, half a century ago. Even more surprising for many is where he lives. He'd be the first to actually live in the slum he hopes to represent.
