Makueni Women Representative Rose Museo has declared that she will be battling to retain her position in the coming August 2022 general elections.
In 2021, Museo had announced that she would be vying for the governor of Makueni County in the 2022 general elections.
However, addressing her earlier declaration, the Woman Rep said that she was not yet ready for the position since she had some goals and aspirations as the Women Rep that she had not yet accomplished.
Rose thanked the people of Makueni for believing in her and urged them to vote for her to retain the Women Rep seat in August.
“I arrived at this decision after thinking about it and asking God for His will on me in August. Also, women in this county love me a lot and they really pleaded with me to retain the seat so that we can continue working together as women of Makueni County,” she said.
To those that wanted her to go for the higher seat, Rose asked them to pardon her as she didn’t feel ready enough to scale higher in 2022, promising that she would go for the gubernatorial position in the next general elections.
The women rep also noted that residents of Makueni still have a lot of challenges including bad roads, food, insecurity among others.
“We still have challenges like bad roads, scarcity of food, insecurity, and poor education and I feel that we have not yet exhausted these challenges. There is no need to jump to a top seat if these challenges have not yet been exhausted,” Rose posed.
Other candidates interested in the Makueni Women Rep position include Nominated MCA Mbula Mutula, Deputy Governor Adelina Mwau, Wavinya Nzioka, Betty Kanini, Jane Kitundu among others.
