More than 20 women leaders speaking at Kimorori grounds in Kenol market yesterday, also condemned attacks on women, singling out the parliamentary fracas between Wajir West MP Rashid Amin and his county counterpart Fatuma Gedi at Parliament.The forum anchored by county representatives has been visiting counties with a message of peace and national cohesion to unite the over 45 million Kenyans. Donning their now characteristic white dresses with pink scarfs or flowers, the women said they would not tolerate violence from men.

“We shall not fight physically, we refuse to be beaten, and we are standing with these two women today. Walk with your heads held high, you shall not bring us down,” said Sabina Chege.

On her part, Nairobi Women Rep Esther Passaris said that women were 52 per cent of the Kenyan population and it was time to stand up and condemn femicide and gender-based violence.

“The President has implemented two-thirds gender rule in his Cabinet and yet the National Assembly has failed to pass the law. We must not give up in our quest for equal representation,” she said.
