Nandi County Women Rep Zipporah Kering has said she had done her best in the past four years and deserves a second term to consolidate gains made by her office.
Speaking during a thanksgiving service at St. Patricks Chemnoet Catholic Church, Mrs. Kering said that despite teething challenges, she has made modest gains in improving the social and economic welfare of women and residents across the county.
“As we speak we now have two students from each day school who have benefitted from bursary under the Affirmative Action Fund which was disbursed by my office. We also enrolled two women from each of the 30 wards to driving school to be trained as deivers for subsequent employment in a move aimed at economically empowering them,”said Kering.
The lawmaker defended her record saying her office has achieved a lot in a short time and and she wants to see other major initiatives rolled during her second term.
“I humbly ask for your mandate in this coming polls to complete the journey which we all started together. I have done much work, but more needs to be done and we can only advance faster if you give me a second term,” Kering said.
Mrs. Kering challenged her rivals to outline their achievements in their previous places of work before seeking to contest for her seat.
The County Women Rep is facing competition from Nandi County Public Service Board Chairperson Esther Letting, Nandi County Political Advisor Theresa Chepkwony,Kenya Animal Genetics Resource Center Board Member Dr. Bernadatte Tiony and Dr. Tecla Tum among others.
