What Kidero oughts to do to win women back


The saga surrounding Nairobi Women Representative Rachel Shebesh and Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero is akin to that of a volatile marriage gone south. The similarity in this instance is that of a man ‘disciplining’ his wife for perceived misbehaviour. Sadly, immediately after the assault, there were ‘yippee’ sounds from male chauvinists whose immediate reaction to the unfortunate saga was that Shebesh had asked to be slapped. Yes, sentiments that are unbelievable in this day and age, but we must accept that we still have diehard male chauvinists who believe that women should behave like doormats, not like humans, and any time women display human—like behaviour, they must be slapped (or beaten) into silence.
