At the age of 24 and freshly out of campus, Rehema Kiteto is among the 200 newly recruited Assistant County Commissioners (ACCs) in the country.

This comes at a time when Kenya is warming up ahead of the 2022 General Election.

The ACCs have been deployed by the national government to different parts of the vast Rift Valley in preparation for the elections.

Ms. Kiteto has achieved what many Kenyans can only dream of at her age.

Recently out of college and with no job experience, she applied for the post of assistant county commissioner, through the Public Service Commission last year, and to her surprise, she got the job.

"I saw the advertisement and immediately applied for it. I then crossed my fingers because I had no connections, save for the fact that I met all the qualifications as listed," she told the Nation during an interview at Langa Langa.

After her graduation in 2019, Ms Kiteto worked as a print journalist with the Standard Media Group in Nakuru County.

According to the Nation the young administrator exuded confidence, saying she is ready for her new role.
