Are Kenyan women shying away from politics?
By Veronica Onjoro | July 26th 2016
Several people have declared their candidature for the presidency. But we have not heard or seen any woman publicly declaring her interest in becoming the President of Kenya despite the prevailing wind.
In Britain, Theresa May has taken over as the Prime Minister, in German Angela Merkel is the Chancellor while in America they want to make history by voting in Hillary Clinton as the first American female president.
Ms Clinton has gone through a lot. In Kenya, the women who have declared their candidature for governorship make up for one per cent; while those going for senator are unknown despite many of the incumbent going for governorship.
What about those vying to become MPs? Women should come out and give Kenya a new beginning.
