The Women political factions ‘Inua Mama and Embrace’ have made up their minds to squash all ill intentions and unite to push for the adoption of the two-thirds gender rule that was recently rejected by the Senate. The two teams led by National Gender and Equality Commission Commissioner Priscilla Nyokabi has said that they will also seek to have political parties nominate at least a third of the women to participate in the general elections among other proposals. Hooray for the equality of gender.
Addressing a news conference on Monday, November 25, the women expressed their anger at the Senate Justice and Legal Affairs committee for impeding the implementation of the rule that dictates that women leaders have performed better compared to their male counterparts.
Nyokabi mentions that, “It is true we have differences in reference to the leaders we support, but for now, our priority is to seek audience of the Senate Committee which trashed the bill and explain to us why they rubbished the bill. “In the public domain, the woman representative seat has helped improve the representation of women in parliament, they are not only fronting for the two-thirds rule but also for 50-50 representation in government”.
Moreover, they also mentioned that male leaders are also divided politically but nobody criticizes them for that whereas they receive tons of backlash for their factions. ‘Inua mama and Embrace’ factions have been in political wrangles with the former support of the Deputy President William Ruto and the latter being pro-handshake. Hurling of unmentionable words that serve the purpose of shaming and humiliating each other having been part of the theatrics the groups have been playing.
