PEOPLE living with disabilities have asked the government to fast-track the implementation of constitution to enable them seek political leadership.
Mombasa Disability Advocacy Committee deputy chair Hamisa Zaja was speaking yesterday after celebrations to mark the day of persons with disability at Tononoka Grounds in Mombasa.
"Those living with disability have not been recognised and given opportunities in leadership. Many people with disability are looked down upon as people who cannot make decision on their own and therefore need the physically fit to help them," she said. Zaja said the law provides for 5 per cent representation at all levels of leadership.
