Kenyans unimpressed by gender ministry's support for Anne Waiguru after impeachment

Achieving Woman By Eve woman writer

A section of Kenyans are not impressed by a statement by the Ministry of public service and gender on the impeachment of Governor Anne Waiguru.

Following the impeachment of the governor on 9 June 2020, the ministry through CS Prof Margaret Kobia released a statement registering disappointment in the impeachment and said that the move was an indicator that some people do not value strong women leadership. She went on to note that the move especially during this Covid-19 period is negatively impacting social economic development of the country.

The statement has been met with strong reactions as some Kenyans accuse the ministry of playing the gender card. Others pointed out the inconsistency in support as the same ministry failed to speak up when Senator Susan Kihika was recently ousted as the Senate Majority Whip.

In fact the Kihika herself tweeted asking whether a similar letter for her and Cecily Mbarire from the ministry after their ouster.

Kipchumba Murkomen, Elgeyo Marakwet senator, also weighed in on the issue.
