Nyali MP Mohamed Ali on Sunday 2nd stunned ACK Kahawa Wendani congregation when he took to the pulpit with his fluency in speaking Kikuyu language.
The first time MP who was in the church for a Sunday service together with other leaders could be seen mastering the language with the jubilant congregation asking to be addressed more in the local dialect.
Moha, as he is commonly known, however, switched to Swahili after a while. Mohamed Ali is not new to Kenyans and is known for his investigative journalism in KTN Tv before joining politics.
Ali often stunned Kenyans through his exposes and investigative journalism that laid to bare issues especially on corruption, terrorism and drug abuse.

In 2016, the former investigative reporter ditched his media career and announce his intentions to join politics. In the run up to last year’s (2017) polls, Ali lost in the Nyali ODM nominations.
He accused Mombasa governor Hassan Joho of allegedly masterminding his fall. The former reporter, however, contested for the seat and clinched it as an independent candidate.
Mohamed Ali belongs to the sparsely populated Borana community. He was born on August 4, 1979, in Isiolo County. He is an alumnus of Moi University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science (BSC), Communication and Public Relations at the Eldoret based university.
The lawmaker recently said that he was ready to reconcile with Mombasa governor Hassan Joho with who they have not been seeing eye to eye over political issues.
While in KTN, Ali was viewed as Deputy President William Ruto’s number one critic especially in cases of corruption with some accusing him for subjective reporting and working for opposition chief Raila Odinga.
Since his election into parliament, Mohamed Ali has shown interests to work with William Ruto and he has publicly claimed that he was going to work with the deputy president for the betterment of Nyali people
