There will be a constitutional crisis next year if men do not support women for leadership, a women political alliance has warned.
Community Advocacy Awareness Trust director Kenneth Ochieng said there are no mechanisms in place to ensure that Parliament and the Senate are made up of at least a third of one gender.
He said most women are competing for women's representative leaving other seats to men. "Without a third women representation, then there will be no Parliament," Ochieng said.
He was addressing journalists at Kitale Museum at weekend during a women's workshop. "We are targeting rural areas to sensitise our women and men about the issue of gender balance. The media should also help in educating our people," Ochieng said. The seminar was attended by women from Trans Nzoia, Uasi Gishu, West Pokot, Elgeyo Marakwet and Bungoma.
