Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Hitchin and Harpenden
Bim Afolami was first elected as the MP for Hitchin and Harpenden in the 2017 General Election. Almost 200 local Conservative members met at Rothampstead Conference Centre to select him as their local candidate.
Bim's grandfather was an Anglican vicar who emigrated to Britain from Nigeria. Bim's father is a local NHS doctor, and his mother is a pharmacist. Bim studied Modern History at Oxford, following which he worked for the Conservative Party when it was in opposition.
Bim entered parliament with over 10 years experience in business - he was a lawyer in the City, a senior executive at HSBC, and an adviser to several small businesses.
His wife Hetti is also a former lawyer (both working in the City and for the Government); now she runs a small family business with her father. Together they have three boys - Zachary, Sam and Freddie.
