MP-elect to donate his salary to constituents

The popular MP has also promised to donate a dairy cow to every household in his constituency.

Mishra won the Kesses parliamentary seat in Uasin Gishu County by a landslide on a Jubilee ticket garnering 45,089 votes against his closest challenger Cornelius Kogo of Kanu who received 2,789 votes.

The key to Mishra’s historic has largely been credited to his philanthropic actions towards his constituents.

According to The Nation, Mishra, the owner of Mediheal Group of Hospitals, has declared that he will direct his salary to a special fund to cater for the residents’ needs.

“My salary will go to the constituency kit to help poor people in my constituency,” the popular obstetric gynaecologist said.

Mishra has in the past been generously contributing to community projects and waiving huge medical bills for patients admitted to his hospital.

He has also promised to donate a dairy cow to every household in Kesses as a token of appreciation for electing him to parliament.

Mishra popularly known as “Kiprop” in Eldoret, was born in Odiasha, Eastern India in 1965 and speaks some Kalenjin.

He moved to Kenya 18 years ago soon after his wife Palavi Mishra got a job as a gynaecologist in Eldoret.The couple later invested in the medical sector and now have hospitals in Eldoret, Nakuru, and Kigali, Rwanda.
