Women in Uasin Gishu county have been urged to vie for the Senate's positions. Speaking in Eldoret, Esther Cherubet, who is aspiring for a parliamentary set in the newly created Moiben Constituency, said lack of civic education was frustrating women from vying for the posts.
'" I'm afraid women specially from the grassroots should change their attitude and go for this position," said Cherubet.
She said culture should not be a hindrance for women to achieve their dreams, adding that the strong opposition they encounter during campaigns is among challenges women are facing in their quest for leadership.
Cherubet said the County expects to send many women to Parliament due to the high number of female aspirants contesting various posts and the already established trust from residents in women leadership. She said Uasin Gishu county alone expects to elect many MPs "because we have many strong women aspirants in all the six constituencies."
