Deputy President William Ruto has assured Kenyan women this afternoon that his administration is committed to implementing the two-thirds gender rule and that the law will be fully functional within the first three months of the Kenya Kwanza government.
”Within three months of the Kenya Kwanza rule, we will put a mechanism to actualize the two-third gender rule and immediately operationalize that mechanism so that women don’t have to wait longer. While we went through the many economic fora across the country, we listened to the women of Kenya.
They told us many things about empowerment, and leadership and they gave us examples of how they want things to change,” DP Ruto said at the Nyayo Stadium at a meeting with UDA women, where he signed the Kenya Kwanza Women Charter.
Also at the meeting, the UDA flagbearer seemed to take a swipe at Azimio-One Kenya for picking a woman as a running mate, saying they in UDA were focused on mama mboga and not mama moja, in reference to Martha Karua.
”This election is about the economy of Kenya and its people. The face of this election is a woman called mama mboga and not mama moja. In this election, Kenya Kwanza is the place for the women of Kenya. The most formidable women leaders of Kenya are in Kenya Kwanza,” he added.
