The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

A mem­ber of the Homa Bay county as­sem­bly ser­vice board wants to run for Mbita MP seat. Speak­ing at Mbita town on Thursday, Judy Ka­maria said she will con­cen­trate on im­prov­ing ed­u­ca­tion and in­fra­struc­ture. “My mo­ti­va­tion is the de­sire to fight de­file­ment, which leads to teenage preg­nan­cies that im­pede girls’ ed­u­ca­tion,” she said. Ka­maria said the con­stituency may not have pro­duc­tive res­i­dents in fu­ture if the fight against teen preg­nan­cies is lost. “My lead­er­ship will en­sure no mud class­rooms in Mbita,” she said. Ka­maria said she would pro­mote an in­clu­sive lead­er­ship, which con­sults res­i­dents on devel­op­ment mat­ters. She said she would cham­pion leg­is­la­tion and pro­grammes to im­prove the lives of the fish­ing com­mu­nity, the ma­jor­ity in Mbita con­stituency.
