"In life, you get what you bargained for not what you deserve... to me what happened to him was very very good," the MP stated.

"I served with this lady at UoN in Sonu and this leader is very hardworking. She used to fight for the welfare of students," he stated.

"I have no iota of doubt that this lady is going to deliver," the MP added.

Babu also expressed disappointment over the appointment of older people instead of young people by President Kenyatta.

"Mr President also nominated people who are older than Methusela in the Bible. This is not good for youth in this nation," he argued.

The President has received a lot of heat over for his love of retirees, even as millions of young Kenyans languish in unemployment.

Official data shows 75 per cent of Kenya’s population is under the age of 40. There is a motion pending in the National Assembly seeking to reduce the retirement age to 50 from 60.
