A section of Kenyans on Twitter commonly referred to as #KOT could not hide their love for Betty Adera, the founder of Betty Adera foundation, on Tuesday.
Through the hash tag #BettyforMsPresident which trended on Twitter for a better part of Tuesday, Kenyans heaped praises on Betty following the efforts she has been making in undertaking development programs within Kibera slums and fighting for equal rights for women and children.
For starters, the ‘Ms. President Kenya’ is the first ever of its kind reality series on leadership which premiered on 30th January 2019 and has an objective of seeing tens of women from across Kenya compete to win the ‘Presidency’.
71 contestants were given the opportunity to battle it out for the grand prize in the 26-episode reality television series, as they go through a series of tasks and challenges designed to display their leadership capacity and ability.
Women with exemplary community projects and passionate about bringing social change applied to participate in the show after a call for participation was released in June 2018.
After a thorough shortlisting based on the answers submitted in the application forms received from close to a 1000 women from all corners of the country, at least 375 were invited for auditions in five major towns in Kenya.
The women representing the majority of counties across Kenya survived through viewers’ votes and judges’ decisions, until the last one emerges as the “Ms President”.
The winner and the 12 finalists will receive additional leadership mentor-ship opportunities and a surprise prize.
Well, Betty Adera who also refers to herself as the ‘Incoming Ms President Kenya’ being part of the interesting show was born and raised in Wouth Ogik village in Migori County.
She started the Betty Adera Foundation aimed at empowering women economically and to promote peace.
Through her initiative, she has rehabilitated over 100 women who were sunk in drugs, though counselling and training them on marketable causes to enable them sustain themselves economically.
