Kirinyaga speaker Githinji to run for woman rep
Kirinyaga county assembly speaker Anne Githinji has declared she will run for woman rep. This brings the number of hopefuls who want to unseat Winnie Karimi to three. Speaking to the Star on the phone, Githinji said her background in international law gives her the upper hand because if elected, she will prepare bills to empower women and the youth. She said she will launch her campaigns upon the dissolution of Parliament next year. ‘’I’m a lawyer. I have to adhere to the spirit of the Constitution. At the moment, I’m serving the county,’’ she said. Sources say businesspeople and lawyers have been pushing Githinji to contest and are ready to bankroll her campaigns.
