About Me

About Hon. Rose Museo

I was born and raised in Makueni county. I have been married for 30 years and a proud mother of one child. I was motivated to vie for an elective position by my ability to positively transform lives in the various communities I have worked in. A believer in the potential of women, my role models are former Kibwezi MP, Agnes Ndetei and former Lands Cabinet Secretary and Kitui governor H.E. Charity Ngilu, for their boldness, outspoken and receptive nature and Hon. Nyiva Mwendwa whose dedication to changing women’s lives has borne fruits in the region to date.

After college, I returned to my rural home to serve the community. I worked as a social worker with Action Aid Kenya for 19 years, interacting with communities in Kitui, Mutomo, Isiolo, Wamba, Maralal and the larger Samburu. This experience enabled me to appreciate blending the diverse and unique Kenyan cultures. My involvement with the community, especially women and the youth, saw me vie for the Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organization chairperson’s seat in Makueni. I got overwhelming support, with some members urging me to vie for the national seats.

I concentrated on community building and served them whole-heartedly, and I was appointed as the Director of the Children and Women Department in the Seventh Day Adventist Church in my home area. By 2010, I had become a household name in Ukambani with my work speaking on my behalf. I was a women’s rights advocate and my paralegal knowledge helped me deal with issues of gender-based violence. I worked with the community and the administration to seek justice for the oppressed, till a misfortune struck in 2007 when I was involved in a tragic road accident that left me with a broken leg. 

In 2011, as I was preparing to travel to India for an operation on the injured leg, the community gathered to pray for my quick recovery where more than 600 people came and requested my to be their County Women Representative, a request she accepted.  I am a member of the Labour and Social Welfare Committee as well as the Catering and Health Club Committee.
