Former Taita Taveta woman representative Joyce Lay has ventured into the gospel industry.

Lay who was appointed to the board of the Water sector Trust fund board last year released her first single dubbed Najua Wewe Ni Bwana on Monday.

In the praise song, Lay thanks God for being faithful.

Lay served as the Taita Taveta county Woman representative between 2013  and 2017.

However, her bid to clinch the Senate seat on a Jubilee party ticket in 2017 failed after she was trounced by Jones Mwaruma of the ODM party.

Last year, the former legislator opened up on how she got herself into debts after losing the seat forcing her to sell her assets.

“ You can’t get rich by being a politician not unless you steal public money and get involved in corrupt deals. When I lost I sold the only vehicle I had since 2013 in order to pay debts of money that I used to either support empowerment projects or paid school fees. I still haven’t paid them all. I couldn’t afford to live a luxurious life because I was serving people in marginalized areas,” wrote Ms. Lay.

During her reign, Joyce supported a bill on assisted reproduction or in-vitro fertilization (IVF) detailing her experience where she was forced to adopt her own son four-year-old Terrence Lay after going through the surrogacy process and identifying gaps in the law.
