It is hard to believe that the flamboyant bespectacled gentleman was once a matatu tout along Langalanga route. But he’s quick to always admit that he actually was and is a part of his life he’s in fact proud about. That was way back in 2003 after the 2002 general elections when having been displaced from his former home, Hamisi Ngutu Mutura settled at Pondamali in Nakuru.

From Tout …..

From tout he graduated to a squad driver and conductor but had to go back to his former occupation when his family opened a dispensing chemist at Pondamali and Hamisi was to run it.  Hamisi is a trained pharmtec and had previously been employed at the same capacity.

……. to community leader

As chairman of the Nakuru Analysts, Ngutu together with Patrick Kinyua and Steve Gitukia initiated the mobilizing of resources in aid of Barut primary School special unit. They were able to bring together a group of well-wishers including the Nakuru County Assembly County speaker and were able to donate foodstuffs, learning materials and other basic necessities to the unit that caters for children with various forms of disabilities.
Ngutu is also the chairman and founder if Nakuru West Youth Sacco through which members have been able to acquire land. He says that his dream is to see each member own a home of their own in the coming few years.
This interaction with the community has revealed to him the various needs of the community and he’s determined to bring change to the residents of Rhoda Ward in Nakuru West Constituency of which he is a resident. To achieve this he has decided to get into politics by seeking to be elected as the Member for County Assembly representing this area.
