Suna East MP Junet Mohamed is a man known for not mincing his words.
At political rallies, he takes opponents head-on and shoots from the hip.
Well, this bold character is seemingly replicated in her wife Faiza Deka Jamaa.
Video footage of her campaigning for her husband Junet has shown exactly that.
While she appeared bold, articulate and fearless just like her husband, it is her mastery of the Dholuo language that has mesmerized Kenyans.

Her charming address to Migori residents to back her husband and area ODM senate candidate Eddy Okech will make one think she is the one on the ballot.
"I'm asking you to support Eddy, for the senate seat... I'm pleading with you to do that for my sake," she said in Dholuo.
"Raila wants you to vote for those who are in ODM. He wants his team that will help him when he ascends to power. People like Eddy and Junet."
Talk of the ordinary political language.
"And to Eddy, when you give them something, I'll ensure I top it up, you know me, I never leave our supporters without a token of appreciation," she added.
"Raila is not in for a voting pattern of mix and match and you should tell those who are running on other tickets other than ODM to know time is up. Everyone must go back to their homes."
The video of her speech has gone viral on social media with Kenyans expressing their admiration for her eloquence.
