Dr Rose Kisia, a lecturer at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology has joined the race for Kisumu County Woman Representative.

Dr Kisia on Friday, January 7, confirmed her quest for the seat, in what will be her second bid.

She unsuccessfully vied for the seat in 2013, before she joined pioneer Kisumu County Government where she was appointed Executive Member for Tourism.

In an interview with Lake Region Bulletin, Dr Kisia said she is more prepared now, and will be battling for the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party ticket.

“Mine is to ask Kisumu residents to consider me for the position when the August elections come,” said Kisia.

She said she will be banking on what she termed as her stellar performance during her time as the Executive Member for Trade, Culture and Tourism.

“I did a lot during that period. I built Korowe and Kosawo Markets, and I also left Pap Onditi Market in the pipeline,” she said.

She also said she worked with her colleagues from the other Luo Nyanza Counties to initiate a cultural festival which promoted trade and culture.

She noted that she also developed some trade policies, which she said she will rejuvenate to ensure that traders benefit from the transformation agenda targeting small scale traders.

Dr Kisia who pursued her pHD studies in New Zealand, and Masters in the UK, as well as living in Canada, and attending a number of conferences across the globe has exposed her to opportunities, which she said she will use to benefit Kisumu residents.

“I want to transform the lives of Kisumu residents through various programs and strategies,” she said.
