“I Will Continue Advocating for Women Leadership in Kenya“. Governor Ngilu in Kisumu*
By Barrack Muli.
Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has called on Kenyan women to seek elective positions and ensure that the country reaps from the gains of women representation and participation in leadership.
Speaking at Seme Constituency in Kisumu County today when she was opening a NGAAF project for women traders, Governor Ngilu said time had come for “the country to embrace a meaningful women representation and leadership that puts women in decision-making spaces”.
She said there was need for social-economic empowerment for women calling on the country to view women’s leadership holistically.
Noting that women are the backbone of rural economies in Kenya and Africa as a whole, the Governor added that women play a significant role to ensure their families’ well being.
On her part, Kisumu County MP Rosa Buyu praised Ngilu for her role in mentoring women leaders in Kenya.
“She went for the country’s top seat when no woman could do, she dared to speak against bad leadership in Kenya when no woman could. This is a great woman leader”. Said MP Buyu.
Public Service and Gender CAS Rachael shebesh commended Ngilu’s bravery in fighting for women space in the country.
She further linked Kitui’s milestones in manufacturing as an indication of good leadership and focus on poverty elimination.
