A Win In Kenya For Transgender People

Audrey Mbugua

Transgender activist Audrey Mbugua won a seminal case against the Kenya National Examination Council on Tuesday, granting her legal recognition as a woman on her academic certificates.

“We won. It’s a huge watershed moment,” Mbugua told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

The KNEC has 45 days to issue the name change. The High Court also ruled that the certificate be printed without a gender mark.
