When Bomet and Laikipia Women representatives speak, all must listen.
Joyce Korir and Cate Waruguru have a definite tone of voice; loud like a Simba.
As women politicians, they are also fearless in the face of political competition.
Another similarity of the leaders is they began their journey in politics as representatives of a ward in the County Assembly, but today represent an entire county at the National Assembly.
Joyce (Bomet) and Cate (Laikipia) will not allow you to butter their bread but will get into the kitchen and find what they need on their plate, with gusto.
In Kenya, women politicians are easily intimidated and this is why these two women politicians, although greenhorns in politics are standing out.
Their videos during political meetings go viral with ease because of the content of their message, challenging all in equal measure.
Cate is known in Laikipia County for making the Governor Ndiritu Muriithi and Deputy Governor John Mwaniki cower in fear. Interestingly, Cate has studied the bible and a Diploma in Theology Studies is part of her education background.
Joyce, however, has a more extensive history in public service as she served Bomet Municipality as Mayor/Deputy Mayor and Councillor.
The two are lethally fluent when speaking their native language, Kikuyu and Kalenjin, with their speeches intertwined with relevant proverbs.
Talk in mashinani is rife urging the two to go for the top county seats. Will Kenya have a Governor Waruguru and Governor Joyce in 2022?
