Jennifer Munyiva, a disabled woman who was harassed and dragged by Nairobi County askaris in 2022, has finally bagged a Kshs 5 million tender to supply goods and services to the Nairobi County Government.
Munyiva’s win is a major victory for people with disabilities and a reminder that anything is possible if you never give up on your dreams.
In March 2022, Munyiva was selling fruits and vegetables in Nairobi’s Central Business District when she was approached by a group of askaris. The askaris demanded that she pay a bribe, but Munyiva refused. The askaris then proceeded to harass and drag her, even though she was in a wheelchair.
A video of the incident went viral on social media, sparking outrage and condemnation from Kenyans across the country. The askaris were eventually arrested and charged with assault, but the incident left Munyiva traumatized.
Despite the trauma she experienced, Munyiva refused to give up on her dreams. She continued to work hard and save up money. In early 2023, she decided to bid for a Kshs 5 million tender to supply goods and services to the Nairobi County Government.
Munyiva was up against several other bidders, but her determination and perseverance paid off. She won the tender in February 2023, and is now in the process of delivering goods and services to the Nairobi County Government.
Munyiva’s win is a major victory for people with disabilities. It shows that people with disabilities are capable of achieving anything they set their minds to. It also sends a strong message to the Nairobi County Government that they need to do more to support people with disabilities.
In an interview with a local news station, Munyiva said that she is grateful for the opportunity to serve the Nairobi County Government. She also said that she hopes her story will inspire other people with disabilities to pursue their dreams.
“I want to show the world that people with disabilities are capable of anything,” Munyiva said. “I never gave up on my dreams, and now I am living proof that anything is possible.”
Munyiva’s win is a testament to her strength and resilience. It is also a reminder that we need to do more to support people with disabilities and create a more inclusive society.
