Meet Mary Mugure – From Sex Worker To Bunge

Meet Mary Mugure

The Nairobian newspaper shares the incredible story of Mary Mugure Waithegeni who was a sex worker but is currently aspiring to become an MCA.

Born in Mathare’s Kiamaiko slums, Mugure who turns 40 years old this year, narrates to The Nairobian how her upbringing in the slums has inspired her to become an agent of change. Mugure’s dream is to be Kiamaiko Ward MCA because she says, she knows how it feels to grow up in that hood.

Mary Mugure then narrates her troubled past. In 2000, a young Mugure lost her mother and had to step up to take care of her siblings. It is a friend who introduced her to stripping and she would eventually get into prostitution.

Now, the mother of 14 biological and adopted children, says that she would not wish for any of her children to get into sex work.

She says that she has worked hard to ensure her children and especially her daughters have gotten an education that will help them make a decent living.

Mary Mugure who is now studying counseling aspires to take over from the current MCA, a man she campaigned for in the last election.

She explained that she is a better-suited candidate because she understands the needs of her community and the challenges of women.

Mugure, who had been nicknamed “Mama Yao” because she has a huge following among the youth, is seeking a UDA ticket and will be battling others at nominations for the party’s ticket.
