A candidate for Githunguri parliamentary seat has urged women to rally behind her Eunice Nyambura said men have dominated politics because women shy away.
She is facing seven male candidates in the contest for the seat. Nyambura, a former Chase Bank employee, is running on the GNU ticket. She said it is time a woman is elected to represent the constituency.
She said the constituents have received her candidature well and she is coonfident of victory in the March 4 election. Nyambura urged voters not to vote 'six-piece' as advocated by some political parties.
"Some people think I am over ambitious because men have always dominated politics in the area," she said. "But with the reception I am getting from the electorate, I am very confident I will be elected."
