Kenya: Migori Women's Seat Hopeful Pledges to Start Tobacco Plant

Women and youth should be included in development and governance, Migori women's representative aspirant has said.

"The new constitution has included a seat for women which is set to bring equality in governance and has inspired my bid," said Fatuma Mohammed.

She was speaking at the official launch of her bid at Migori Municipal Stadium in Migori town. Mohammed said she will champion for girl and women rights by building more schools if elected.

"I have worked closely with Italian investors who seek to start tobacco processing plant and start a wine and soaps industry along River Kuja in Nyatike district," she said.
