APPOINTMENT OF HON. CRYSTAL ASIGE AND HON. CATHERINE MUMMA TO THE NATIONAL SENATE
Nairobi, 9 September 2022 – As a broad-based, politically non-partisan movement of members committed to promoting and protecting human rights, Amnesty International Kenya attracts and serves a very diverse set of Kenyans.
We are thrilled that two of our dynamic board members, Catherine Mumma and Crystal Asige, have been appointed to represent the interests of women and persons with disabilities in the National Senate.
Hon. Catherine Mumma has been our longest-serving member of the National Board, having served for over five years. She is a passionate constitutionalist whose vast experience in devolution, the right to food and health will be invaluable to her service in the Senate.
Over the last three years, Hon Crystal Asige introduced disability rights into the centre of Amnesty Kenya’s work. Urging universal design and diversity principles in all our spaces, Crystal also championed the power of culture, music, and art across our programmes as well. We fully expect her to mainstream the interests of over 1.5 million people living with disabilities.
We take the opportunity of them stepping down from the Amnesty Kenya National Board to congratulate them warmly. We also task them to mainstream human rights and social justice in all the affairs of the Senate.
