Earlier today Tabitha Wambui Njoroge was announced as the new Guinness Made of Black Ambassador in Kenya. Tabitha is a renowned Kenya Premier League referee, a mother of two teenagers and a single mother. The announcement was made during a press brief at a Nairobi hotel where world-famous footballer Thierry Henry was speaking to Kenyan journalists. Thierry is the global Guinness ambassador and is currently on an African tour.
I had had an opportunity have a one on one interview with Tabitha at the presser shortly after the announcement. She speaks on her journey as a woman referee in a male-dominated sport, as a single mother of two teenagers and what this new partnership means to her. She also shares her reflections on football in Kenya and words of advice to fellow women who are afraid to be mavericks. Here is the audio interview
