COMMUNITY LEADERS ROUNDTABLES IN THE COUNTIES

Description 

For the last 2 months, we have been meeting community elders, religious leaders and other opinion leaders from Kajiado, Narok, Nandi, Trans Nzoia, West Pokot, Nyandarua and Kisumu Counties.  We are engaging them in candid discussions on the place of women leadership in their communities. We are going further and showing them the economic and social benefits of having women leaders and vice versa, hoping to get them to support our agenda of encouraging People in their respective counties to vote for women in the upcoming elections. The mentioned counties are among those that elected no or very few women in the 2013 general elections. This meant nominating a third or more women to their assemblies so that they can meet the constitutional requirement of not having one gender having a membership of more than two thirds.

The Country is using millions of shillings every year to pay nominated assembly members, money that can go to development if we choose to elect women.

We are supporting women running for MCA and Governor's positions in West Pokot, Mombasa, Trans Nzoia, Nyandarua, Kajiado, Kisumu, Narok and Nandi Counties.
