At the same time, women leaders from Nyandarua and Nakuru counties have lashed out at Parliament terming it a disgrace.
The over 100 women leaders said they were disturbed by the manner in which MPs were conducting business in Parliament.
According to their representative Lydia Githendu, the move by Parliament to amend the Elections Act and the Political Parties Act sent a wrong signal to Kenyans.
“We note with concern that MPs whose core business is to formulate laws supposedly did not have time to debate critical Bills for the implementation of the Constitution,” she said.
They called on President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga to dissolve the House and call for fresh elections as the current Parliament was divided and it was only passing Bills that suited their own interests.
They said this was the wrong time for MPs to change election laws.
According to them, Kenyan women have been disadvantaged in regard to higher education and the proposed amendments were meant to lock out potential women candidates.
The women were addressing the Press in Naivasha during the opening of a three-day workshop on women leadership organised by the Women Political Alliance Kenya.
