Onyango, who lives with HIV, said she felt robbed after failing to be nominated in the recent political party primaries for the slot of Member of Parliament to represent HIV and AIDS victims in Kenya. She cited a lack of clear definition of people living with HIV as a special interest group in the country's new constitution as the greatest challenge in achieving equal representation in national governance as she launched her book, entitled 'Beyond public confessions - Woman's struggle to conquer HIV and AIDS' which is a collection of testimonies of challenges faced by affected women in society and elective politics circles.
