Samuel Gonzi Biography
Samuel Gonzi is a Kenyan politician and a Member of Parliament (MP) representing Kinango constituency in Kwale county. He is a member of The National Alliance and a coalition member of Jubilee Alliance.
In October 2012, Kinango MP Gonzi Rai declared that he would ditch FORD People where he was the vice-chairman to support Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidential bid if he fulfills promises he made to him.
He said that one of the demands is that a member of his community should be appointed Kenya Ferry Services (KFS) board chairman.
“My move was based on the promises that the vacant KFS board chairman position should come to Kinango. “My other demand is that my people should be given top jobs in the various fields where they qualify. Unemployment has been a major problem among the Duruma people,” Gonzi Rai said.
