I am delighted to announce that Senator Lucy Gichuhi is joining the Liberal team.

Lucy Gichuhi is an inspiration.

Her story is a remarkable tale of perseverance, selfless sacrifice for family and achievement over adversity. She chose to come to Australia because she knew it was the best country in the world to realise her dreams, and now she is in the Australian Senate working to ensure that Australia remains a land of opportunity.

She is a true Australian success story and we are honoured that she has chosen to join the Liberal Party.

Lucy’s values are fundamentally Liberal values; freedom of choice, conscience, thought and belief, a fair go, mutual obligation and contributing to society.

She will bring to the Liberal Party an important perspective drawn from her remarkable personal journey. Her passion for aged care and seniors’ issues, for strengthening Australia’s relationship with Kenya and Africa more broadly and for a proudly multicultural Australia will be a great asset to our team.

I look forward to working even more closely with Lucy as a Liberal Senator for South Australia.
