My Mayor is a book that was inspired by Ochitti’s experience during campaigns for the position of mayor of Wipolo Municipal Council as a member of the opposition party—the Alternative Forum Party (TAF).
This campaign was in Wipolo District in the months of September, 2015, to February, 2016. In this book, Ochitti shares his experience as a local opposition political novice in local grassroots elections.
He shares stories of poverty, betrayal, intrigue, corruption, sex, and power in a local democracy. While this vices in politics are not new to Ochitti; he is surprised at the extent to which these vices were practiced. Neither did Ochitti know what inspires these actions until he joined politics.
