Description

In This Episode:

Last week, I had the opportunity of meeting a wonderful Kenyan woman. I call her an ’African Amazon’ because she defies the standards of what is expected of an African woman and risks even her own life to seek what is true and just.

Honorable Martha Karua, is our African Amazon of the month.
