Samburu West MP Naisula Lesuuda has revealed how her marital status has impacted her political career.
Speaking with KTN on Tuesday, Lesuuda said her marital status was an issue when she was seeking the elective seat both in the 2017 and 2022 General Elections.
She said competitors would attack her based on her marital status, but her track record made her stand out among male opponents.
"In this election, my opponents said that now I am married, why don't I go and vie in Baringo where I am married?
So the other time I said I was single it was a problem and now that I am married it was a problem. With women, it’s never enough. But in this election, I made sure I worked to a point where this would be a non-issue," she said.
