I’ll be Kenya’s first female president, says Sabina Chege.
Sabina Chege, a candidate for the MP position, is optimistic that she will one day become Kenya’s first female president.
In expressing her desire, Sabina claimed she has what it takes to assume the position of leadership, noting that women in leadership positions have demonstrated their ability to deliver.
“I would pray to God that, when that day comes and happens, that I will be the first female president,” she remarked.
“When a woman is in leadership, she is a mother, she can take care of everyone. Sometimes, men can be abrasive and highhanded, but you will see changes when a woman is president.”
Sabina said she is now concentrating on her family responsibilities during an interview with TV 47’s Willis Raburu, but she did not specify the seat she intended to run for in the future.
“I’m putting my family first; I’m more of a mother trying to pull things together. We’ll see how politics develop over the next two to three years, she remarked.
We’ll see if I return to Murang’a, stay in Nairobi, or run for office at the federal level.
Sabina said that her present attention is on her responsibilities at the National Assembly and listed many proposals she is working to get passed.
Four months before the 2022 general election, in April 2022, the MP—a longtime ally of former president Uhuru Kenyatta—announced her desire to resign from her position as a woman representative.
Since 2013, she had held onto it.
She announced that she would instead concentrate on national politics to her followers at Murang’a Teachers College.
Chege claimed that her second term had been challenging because most of her followers disapproved of her decision to join Azimio, a group with little support in the county.
She stated, “Today, I am here to seek your permission to participate in national politics and to explain why I choose to support Azimio la Umoja.
She had previously stated her desire to succeed former governor Mwangi wa Iria.
Prior to defecting to Azimio leader Raila Odinga’s camp, the MP had also earlier expressed interest in standing as a running mate for the then Vice President William Ruto.
