The Maendeleo ya Wanawake Organization leaders have today 16th January 2020 asked politicians to tone down and stop traumatizing Kenyans with unwanted political ‘noise ‘and instead support President Uhuru on the BIG FOUR Agenda.
Led by their National Chairperson Mrs.Rahab Muiu, the national women leaders urged politicians to find amicable solutions to their conflict and stop exchanging unprintable words on national platforms as they are setting a bad example.
“We strongly believe grievances, disputes, and differences in opinion can be addressed in a more amicable manner especially when addressing the President and all leaders working in the government,” the national chair Mrs. Muiu noted.
Mrs. Rahab Muiu, the Maendeleo Ya Wanawake national chairperson, also thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for not tiring in the fight against corruption saying it would be much easier if leaders would join instead of politicking.
Supporting the sentiments were of the Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Chair, the former Karachuonyo Member of Parliament Phoebe Asiyo said worrisome statements by the leaders were causing a lot of uneasiness to Kenyans.
“People are really fearsome, afraid of the future, the unknown, of what is going to come. Our mission here today is to ask our leaders to stop traumatizing us and to think about this country as one nation,” Phoebe Asiyo said.
Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organization also urged Kenyans to take time and read the Build Bridges Initiative document to understand the contents and make sound decisions.
“We believe the President means well for this nation. Apart from his legacy, he wants to leave a secure and peaceful country where all tribes of Kenya can participate in governance,” said Asiyo.
“Think about this country as one nation, we have become polarized for many years now,”Phoebe Asiyo added.
Also present was former nominated senator Zipporah Kittony who was once the Organization’s chair who also asked politicians to ‘tone down’ as Kenyans needed peace to work for the nation.
“Let the President invite us for a meeting to discuss how we as Kenyan women and mothers can work together to build this Country,” Kittony concluded.
