9th Parliament Does Not Like Women

The message is loud and clear.

The 9th parliament does not think much of women and do not want more women in parliament. They probably believe that they have nothing to contribute.

I say this because, if they were sensitive, they would have made every effort to have the bill adjusted so that the 40 new constituencies, which they were against could be removed and the new seats fro women remain. Instead this bone of contention was used as en excuse to throw out a bill that would have had far-reaching effect and very positive impact on the country.

This whole episode has made nominated legislator Njoki Ndungu look a real heroine to have gotten her Sexual Offences Bill passed. But just look at the hard work she put in?

She organized seminars for MPs and basically did everything to cajole, beg and so on to get the 9th parliament to pass the land mark legislation that is still having problems being enforced.

At the end of the day, the passing of this law is the only positive achievement of the 9th parliament that I can think of. Sadly even that has been wiped out by the brutal way in which the dream of having 50 seats was wiped out in one short afternoon session.

The message to voters should be very clear. The only verdict they can pass is guilty as charged and the only course of action is to vote out the entire 9th parliament. That is if we plan on getting those extra seats for women early in the life of the 10th parliament.

Incidentally I have just received a message from a friend via sms that puts the sentiments of many Kenyans into words (this guy obviously doesn't read Kumekucha too frequently). He says;

"The men MPs don't want women in parliament, please start a campaign against MPs in the 9th parliament."

Leave a comment now at the site campaigning for the whole 9th parliament to be voted OUT.

Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda have more women in parliament than Kenya. But those women didn't get there through the back door - coz that's exactly what "50 Women MP's Bill" would have done

Hint: Go back to the drawing boards, see what ur doing wrong.

(I'm not a male chauvanist - I just believe some things should be done right).
