Nairobi — Bussinesswoman Esther Muthoni Passaris was on Friday cleared to vie for Nairobi County women's representative on the Kenya National Congress party.
Passaris says that she is in the race with a promise to fight for the rights of the Nairobi woman whom she says has been mistreated.
Passaris who claims to have taken a break in politics after her defeat in the Embakasi by-election says that she decided to come back after watching the chaotic nomination process.
"I had decided to join civil society and fight for the rights of women but after listening to the stories of women I had to come back," she says.
She gave the example of the the woman who was thrown off a matatu in Kawangware.
Passaris said that she will also seek for tougher enforcement of the Sexual Offences Act.
