Kenyan politician changes her name ahead of August polls
Tabitha Mukami Mungai, the CEO of Keroche Breweries, has changed her name to make it easier for the public to identify her during elections.
In a Gazette Notice dated Friday, April 8, the businesswoman announced her decision to drop her maiden name and use her company’s brand.
The businesswoman has changed her name from Tabitha Mukami Mungai to Tabitha Karanja Keroche.
“…formerly known as Tabitha Mukami Mungai, officially and definitely recanted and abandoned the use of her former name Tabitha Mukami Mungai, and in lieu thereof assumed and adopted the name Tabitha Karanja Keroche, for all purposes and authorizes and requests all persons at all times to designate, describe, and address her by her assumed name Tabitha Karanja Keroche only,” according to the notice.
After consulting with her family and close friends, Karanja announced in 2021 that she would be running for the Nakuru Senatorial seat.
As a result of her own experience with unfair business practices, the well-known entrepreneur says she will work to have legislation enacted to curb the practices.
