Uzoma Asagwara, a 39-year-old Nigerian-Canadian, has been elected into the country’s legislative seat for the New Democratic Party.

Asagwara was one of three black people in the 150-year history of the Manitoba legislative house, CBC News reports.

She has been working within her community as a psychiatric nurse and for long has been a community activist in Winnipeg.

Uzoma said she is grateful to everyone, who has supported them long before the election.



The Nigerian-Canadian is not only a politician and activist, she is also an athlete.

Kicking off her campaign in August, Asagwara who played for the Canadian National Basketball team tweeted on her official handle, “The election has officially been called and Sept 10th is only a few weeks away! I’m running to make sure Union Station is represented by a progressive and compassionate MLA with deep roots in our community.”
