Joster Oyiela Mukove a nominee in the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government comes from Ekachero village Emusutwsi sub-location, Ebusamia location in Emuahaya District Vihiga County.

She is a daughter to a former retired Public Works Officer Mr. Gornell Umukove and Mrs. Sophia Umukove.

Mzee Mukove has Eight Children and she is the first born. Mzee Mukove described her as humble, intelligent, respectful and hard working.

Born a disabled girl, Mukove Schooled at Ekasombero Primary School where she sat for her C.P.E.

She then joined Alliance Girls High School in late 70’s where she did her O level and got first Division. She also did her form 5 and 6 at the same Institution.

She then joined University of Nairobi where she did her BA in English Literature and Government before joining the Ministry of Local Government as personnel 3.

While working at the ministry of Local Government she did her CPA at University of Nairobi. Her father says she went for the evening classes after work and that is how she managed.

“I encouraged her to keep up the hard work and here she is,” he says.

Mukove did her Masters degree at the same University in Personnel Management and Statistics before joining Manchester University in the UK where she studied Human Resource and Statistics.

When she returned back in the Country she joined the Ministry of Planning in charge of Human Resource till the time she was nominated for the position by the president.

According to Mr. Bi Good who is Mukove’s first Cousin, he says the lady is so philanthropic whereby she pays school fees for a few children from poor families in the District.

“Most of the villagers who can’t afford their children’s School fees always get their way to her parents’ house for help, and she is always willing to offer a helping hand where necessary,” he said.

He said they are praying so hard for her to go through vetting successfully and take up the docket in the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government.

Being the only person with disability among other nominees, she has an upper hand getting this job. Now she awaits vetting by the parliamentary committee on appointments led by its Chairman the speaker of the National assembly Justin Muturi.
