ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Christina

MY BEGININGS

Born in Kenya, Dr. Roselyn Akombe has worked as a teacher, civil society activist and managed national elections.  Roselyn’s first employment before joining the University of Nairobi was with St. Luke’s Ekware Secondary School.  It is during this period that her political views were formed as she observed the inequalities in the society between the education opportunities she had been privileged to have in comparison to her students in this community- funded institution. She later taught English and Literature at Kebirigo Secondary School, Kiabonyoru High School and Nyabururu Girls High School.

At the University of Nairobi, Roselyn joined the student movement and led demonstrations to protect Karura forest, demand for a new constitution, and denounce police brutality during the autocratic regime of Daniel Arap Moi.

NATIONAL SERVICE

After completing her studies at the University of Nairobi, Roselyn was hired by Prof. Wanjiku Kabira at the Collaborative Centre for Gender and Development. Under the mentorship of Prof. Kabira, worked on the Gender and the National Budget program, the gender and democracy program for increasing representation of women in politics and coordinated the drafting of  the Affirmative Action Bill, whose motion was successfully passed in Parliament.  Roselyn also worked on gender mainstreaming in the national constitution and political parties. This entailed lobbying for participation of women in the constitutional review commission where the Affirmative Action policy was adopted.
