Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o has sent her dad a message ahead of the 2022 general elections.

Lupita is daughter to Kisumu governor Anyang Nyongo. 

Sharing a photo of her dad the actress praised her dad for being thoughtful.

"Watch my dad set the record playing bop it for the first time.

My father Anyang Nyongo does everything thoughtfully, even playing with his family."


 "I am proud to have him on my team and wish him well as he vies to lead the team in Kisumu County as Governor for Five years. And wishing the people of Kenya peaceful and successful elections."

Her goodwill message comes a month after robbers broke into her parent's home.

The incident happened at Nyongo's rural home in Ratta village, Seme sub-county.

Nyanza regional police commander Karanja Muiruri said they are investigating the incident suggesting it could be an inside job.

The incident was reported by the farm manager.

He said assorted clothes and food items were stolen.

“A team of officers has visited the scene. We suspect it could be an inside job,” said the officer.

Police said among those to be questioned are officers who were on duty and staff at the compound that night.

The governor and his family were not at home when the incident happened.

Police said the family was at their other home in Milimani Estate, Kisumu.

The governor's rural home is guarded by two police officers daily.

Lupita has a very close relationship with her dad something most people don't have.

They spend time together whenever they can whether locally or internationally as she is not based in Kenya.

But like they says a daughter is a father's, first love.
