About Me

Who I am

I am Mrs. Jane Kitundu running for Makueni County Womens Representative. As your Womens Representative, I have a clear and firm vision for Makueni County.

Poverty, water problems, food shortages, are some of the issues the Makueni County people are going through. We don't have enough hospitals or dispensaries to accommodate Makueni people. Hospitals are full, people are sleeping two or three in one bed or sleeping on the floor. We need new medical facilities, equipments and access to medicine at lower prices. School dropouts are high from nursery to form four due to lack of school fees; We need free education.

The old and disabled people are not being given their money from government to assist them in medical bills or food and are very neglected. Some need wheelchairs, crutches etc, but they have none. I saw that Makueni leaders were not treating people right and lots of unfairness. An example is with bursaries, they are given to friends and family and not to the orphans or the poor who need it the most.

I want EQUAL treatment for ALL people of Makueni including hiring for jobs at county level without favorites or hiring family or friends only.

"All People Matter in Makueni "

My Mission is to empower Makueni women and their families to  achieve their dreams of a healthy, prosperous and well educated family, whom  resides in a secure , harassment free , poverty free , disease free ,crime and corruption free society by representing them in the Kenyan government as their voice.

My Core Values are that all men and women are created Equal by GOD,  and are given the will to decide on how they live on this earth. Including that no one should be oppressed, discriminated , belittled or treated unfairly because of their race, origin,  tribe or clan, physical disability, social and religious values or any other stereotypes or stigmas given.

My Short term plan is that all Makueni women and their families will have easy access to clean  water and abundant food as well as as access to high quality schools with new technology. As a woman and Registered Nurse in the United States, I know the importance of safe and  high quality medical  care. I will push for increased clinics in our county , ensure that all our children receive childhood  immunizations,  and that all pregnant  women will have  free prenatal care, including prenatal vitamins through  our government clinics and hospitals. I will also push that the government increases lending of low interest loans  to  those who wish to start a business in Makueni County.

My Long term goal is to reduce the the mortality rate of children 0 - 5 yrs, which is still at an alarmingly high rate in our County. This is due to lack of clean water, enough food for both  mothers and babies,  lack of prenatal care, and early immunizations being administered to children.

Makueni County can have zero tolerance to crime, bribery and corruption, which will help us grow and live happier, healthier, and longer lives, by working together in the spirit of HARAMBEE.
