Oloosidan Assistant Chief Agnes Sayia Makes History.

Oloosidan Sub Chief, Agnes Sayia, had written her history in bold letters after graduating with a bachelor of business administration from KAG University.

In her moving story, that even left the elderly in tears, Sayia explained how she balanced her studies as a mother, wife, chief, livestock farmer and being a chief in an insecurity prone location in Kajiado.

“I thank God for all these, and mostly my husband Philip who gave me all the moral and financial support at the university. He is my greatest friend on earth, and without his support, I would not be a proud owner of a degree certificate,” said Sayia.

At 36 years, Sayia enrolled for her course at the university in 2015 after being in employment for one year.

“When I joined KAG University in 2015, I had a lot of challenges of going to work. Being a mother of children, it was not easy but through God mercies I managed to acquire a degree certificate,” said chief Sayia.

Chief Sayia says she has a daughter at JKUAT, another at the School of Medicine and her last son in Form Four.

Other than serving as a local provincial administrator, Sayia has been on the frontline supporting the fight against injurious traditional practices that suppresses the growth and development of young girls.

“We want a society which is free of female genital mutilation and early marriages for girls. We are in a modern society that has accepted and allowed its women to pursue their educational dream,” said Chief Sayia.

The Oloosidan chief says she is enrolling for her Master’s Degree at Maseno University in September next year.

Her husband Philip said: “I have a powerful and focused wife. I cannot tell you how she managed to balance her act in caring for me, children, my cows, her time at work and university.”

He went on: “She asked for time to pursue her dream and I said I have no objection. She has now set an example in this village as a role model to young girls and women.”
