Profile Description

Edinah Nyandawa was born and brought up in Miruka village of Kisii county in a family of three. The mother of three is married in Nambacha location of Bunyala Central ward in Kakamega county. Edinah is perturbed by the day to day suffering that residents of Bunyala ward go through due to poverty thus this is what has motivated her to contest. Her vision is to bring social economic development to the people of Bunyala Central ward.

Edinah is a business woman and farmer in Navakholo region and is prominent for large scale sugarcane farming and owns trucks that she loans to local sugarcane companies to transport sugarcane from farmers. She also works with local women groups and youth groups in various activities such as chicken rearing, sugarcane farming and capacity building.

Development Agenda


Bunyala Central ward has very few ECDE centres forcing children to flock in the few centres thus teachers are forced to handle very large numbers. Some areas also do not have ECDE centres nearby thus children are forced to walk very long distances to access education while others are forced to remain at home and start school late since they cannot persevere walking long distances. Edinah purposes to lobby for the construction of more ECDE classes across the county to bring school closer to every child.


Bunyala Central ward also suffers from insufficiency of health facilities and the few that are available are not well equipped with medical equipment and drugs. The facilities also do not have enough medical personnel to cater for the residents of the ward. Edinah intends to lobby the county government to allocate funds for the renovation of the existing public health facilities. She also purposes to use the funds to construct new health facilities so that every resident of Bunyala Central ward can access medical assistance easily.


Bunyala Central ward has high poverty rates due to joblessness especially among the youth and women who are the majority. This has made criminal activities rampant with robberies, prostitution and indulgence in illicit brews being a common thing. Edinah purposes to lobby the county government to create opportunities for both women and youth to enable them get jobs or set up businesses that will enable them to fend for themselves. She also purposes to set up youth empowerment centres across the ward so that the youths can be empowered when it comes to job searches and engagement in economic activities.
