Then women leaders reiterated their unwavering support of the handshake between ODM leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta, terming it the only way Kenyans will live harmoniously with one another without the constant 5 year violence after every election.
”Women leaders across the country support the unity between Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.Women of this country are mostly affected by political violence and we have vowed to put an end to that suffering.the handshake should now extend to all Kenyans so that we all embrace peace and walk together as a country and improve our dwindling economy,” Homabay Women Rep Gladys Wanga said.
