Keroche Breweries heiress Anerlisa Muigai's mother has changed her name.

The Nakuru Senator aspirant Tabitha Karanja has changed her name.

Her lawyers say she'll be identified by her firm Keroche. A gazette notice says she'll be called Tabitha Karanja Keroche.

Her present identity is Tabitha Mukami Mungai.

Mrs Keroche won't be the first or last politician to change their name closer to an election as part of the strategy.

Most personalities/celebrities change names because it lacks the pizzazz that comes with superstardom or brand recognition, or they just don't like how their original name sounds.

One of whom is award-winning rapper Nyashinki, he dropped the use of his first name, Inyatta.

“Notice is given that by a deed poll dated the 10th April 2019 duly executed and registered in the registry of Documents at Nairobi."

Adding,

"Formerly known as Inyatta Nyamari Ongegu formally and absolutely renounced and abandoned the use of his former name Inyatta Nyamari Ongegu, and in lieu thereof assumed and adopted the name Nyamari Ongegu, for all purposes and authorizes and requests all persons at all times to designate, describe and address him by his assumed name Nyamari Ongegu only."

Nyashinski is yet to reveal the reasons for his decision to drop the name.
