Chief Officer, Education & ICT

The department will complete and handover all projects

I started school in Mwarandinda Primary school, Sokoke ward , Ganze sub county, then proceeded to Maryhill Girls High School Thika and thereafter  was admitted in Moi University where I pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies majoring in Anthropology.

I started a master’s degree in Anthropology after graduation at the same institution but differed after securing a job with the office of the president as a District Officer. Two years later I enrolled at the University of Nairobi to do a Master’s degree in Gender and Development Studies.

My ultimate target is to complete and hand over all projects started by H.E Governor Kingi administration. I also want to see that learning conditions have improved for both ECD’s and VTC’s through provision of adequate facilities and learning materials.

"My advice to young and upcoming female leaders is to believe in themselves and work hard. Nothing good comes easy and nobody will ever give women anything on a silver platter, women should get out and capture the positions available, when they get them it’s a plus for them when they loose they learn from that experience. Our young women leaders should embrace each other, learn to support and build each other for a one woman’s win is a win for all women"
