Barely two weeks after announcing to be the Chief Patron for an outfit called Daughters of the Mountain, the group has come out to dismiss Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, saying it does not have any patrons. The coterie now says it is not a political group, but one which promotes the social and economic affairs of young women from the Mt Kenya region.
” I was honored to accept the request by Daughters of the Mountain to be their Chief Patron. I commit to support the network,mentor and handhold the young women to enable them contribute positively towards the social, economic & political advancement of our region,” Governor Waiguru said on December 11th when a section of the group paid her a visit.
Daughters of the Mountain are fighting for their space in Mt Kenya politics and the latest announcement dismissing Governor Anne Waiguru as its Chief Patron could split the group even further.
On Tuesday, Muranga Women Rep Sabina Chege led a group of women leaders to meet the outfit in Nyandarua, where the Daughters of Mumbi is currently having a series of events.
