Kirinyaga speaker Githinji to run for woman rep

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

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.
