Ten less known facts about Kenya’s first female Marine Pilot, Elizabeth Marami


published on 5 December 2019 300 -

Elizabeth Marami, 28, has made history by becoming Kenya’s first female marine pilot. Born and bred in the coastal city Mombasa, Marami initially studied law at the University of Nairobi, but later changed course and went on to pursue navigation in Alexandria, Egypt for 5 years. “I always grew up knowing that I wanted to do something different, Something out of the ordinary. Being awarded a scholarship to pursue this career was God’s answered prayer…,” she says.

Her job as a marine pilot entails assisting vessels with coming into territorial waters because according to law, vessels entering a country’s territorial waters may not progress to the harbor without officials.

Elizabeth Marami is Kenya's first female marine pilot. She gave a speech during President Uhuru's commissioning of Bandari Maritime Academy.
