WAIGURU gives conditions of supporting RAILA ODINGA‘s referendum – this woman is tough!!

Saturday October 20, 2018-Kirinyaga Governor, Ms Anne Waiguru, has become the first Governor from Central Kenya to candidly speak about the looming referendum.
For the last three months, leaders, led by National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, have been calling for a referendum claiming it will address electoral injustice and other ills affecting the country.
However, Waiguru said she will only support the proposed referendum if it offers an equal chance for women in elective and public service positions.
Speaking at Maya hotel yesterday during a round table forum on the proposed amendments, Waiguru regretted that the two-thirds gender rule in the current statute has not been implemented hence denying women a chance to lead.
Women leaders from different counties who attended the meeting resolved to lobby against constitutional reviews that do not give women equality in society.
“Women are the ones tilling coffee farms yet men are the largest beneficiaries of the bonuses from coffee leaving out women.”
“We need to get many women to Parliament to champion for their rights,’’ Waiguru said.
She said since independence Kenyan women have been left behind in terms of representation and said she will only support the referendum if more seats are allocated to women.
