Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has been selected as an Amujae leader by the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Presidential Center for Women and  Leadership.

In a statement issued on Friday, Waiguru expressed her delight for the honor saying: “To have been selected from a long list of accomplished women leaders from across the continent, is both a great encouragement to me and a fomenting of hope in my quest for gender equality.”

The Amujae Initiative is the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Center’s flagship program designed to boost women leaders and accelerate their leadership journeys.

Through this initiative, the EJS Center seeks to catapult female African leaders to greater heights by fanning their ambition and equipping them with the necessary tools and support to advance to the highest levels of public leadership.

“As I join this prestigious leadership cohort, I look forward to drawing from the programs network spanning former Heads of State, accomplished public servants, inaugural Amujae leaders as well as my fellow cohort members from across the continent,” said Waiguru.

“I also reiterate my commitment to passing on the knowledge and skills I will acquire to other women so we can together secure more equal female representation at critical decision tables, thereby influencing the trajectory of the African continent towards our shared ultimate destiny.”

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf served as the 24th President of Liberia from 2006 to 2018 and was the first elected female head of state in Africa.
