Most of the women in kenya have come out to vie for different positions in their various counties,in the largest numbers yet so far.
Like in the past where only but a few were seen in politics, women have come out for positions of Gubernatorial seats, women representetive, senatorial, Member of parliament and Members of county Assembly seats.
Despite them coming out in large number,they still have challenges that they face in politics.
One of the women vying for the position of women representative in Kajiado County Hon.Martha Kerubo Marwa during an interview said that they are facing various challenges during their campaigns.
Lack of enough resources to facilitate their campaigns is one of the key challenges they face in politics. Another challenge is intimidation by the male politicians during campaigns and lack of support from the community due to unstable financial status and backing . All these were according to Hon. Martha Kerubo.
On the other hand Hon. Martha said that despite all the challenges, she will make it to the parliament as a women rep. for Kajiado County. She is vying with Amani National Congress party(ANC) party and has called on the people of Kajiado to vote for her.
She said that women can make good leaders if given chance to lead and is high time kenyans to rise up and vote for as many women as possible in various positions.
She therefore concluded by urging all kenyans to vote good leaders who can bring change and development to the society.
