Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife, Ida Odinga, has today urged MPs to
pass the Two Third Gender Bill saying this will help in bridging the leadership
gap between men and women in the country.
Speaking after receiving
a delegation of Kenya Women Parliamentarians Association (Kewopa) who are
lobbying for the Gender Bill at her office, Ida said women should no longer be
used as instruments of voting by politicians but rather given leadership roles.
“We cannot just be
used as instruments of voting when we can as well be leaders. Our role should
not be limited to voting only but also to be voted in,” Ida said.
MPs will vote on the Bill
sponsored by Majority Leader Aden Duale this afternoon (Wednesday).
It seeks to
have at least 22 more women nominated to Parliament.
“I appeal to
parliamentarians to pass this Bill, it will make a difference in the lives of
Kenyans,” Ida Odinga said.
