Rebeccah Mumbi Munene was born and raised in Nyahururu, Laikipia county. She schooled in Oliinganea primary school and later joined Mwenje mixed high school where she completed in 1997. She has a diploma in ICT and a higher diploma in guidance and counseling from Vision International University. Rebeccah completed her college and later relocated to Nachu ward, Kikuyu constituency in Kiambu county where she settled and married. She hopes to solve the rampant shortage of water so as to promote horticulture farming. Her motivation for vying as the MCA of Nachu ward is to help lower poverty levels. Her vision is to see a ward that will be the main supplier of horticultural products.
Rebeccah has worked as a community health volunteer and in that position she has been able to link the community with organizations that have offered capacity buildings to various groups like young mothers. She has served as a youth chairlady of Gana youth group where in her position she was able to solicit funds to start a poultry farming project with the group. Rebeccah has also worked as a school manager at Bridge international Lusigetti where she was able to get the pupils in the school soar higher than before in the school records
Water remains a big challenge in Nachu ward since time immemorial. Residents depend on water from boreholes which during dry seasons they experience shortage. To curb this challenge, Rebeccah will lobby for piping water from Ondiri swamp as a to supplement the supply of water from the boreholes.
Many youth lack jobs in the ward. A big number of the jobless youth hope for white collar jobs which are hard to come by. On the other hand, Nachu ward has big farms where Rebecca hopes to encourage youth and men to embrace and start practicing agro-business. If this initiative is taken up, Nachu ward would be one of the main supplier of horticulture to Kiambu and Nairobi county thus creating jobs.
Youth and Women Empowerment.
Women and youth are a group that is industrious and if equipped with appropriate knowledge and skills would create a positive economical impact in any community. She hopes to link the special group to opportunities within and without the county for their own development. She will further ensure funds and resources allocated for the youth and women are channeled to the groups.
