Pregnant women in Kiambu and Nairobi have asked the IEBC to give them priority during the March 4 elections. The women said they should not be made to queue to cast their votes.
Speaking on their behalf, Saidia Dada Network Kenya and Sanitary Towel Ambassador Beatrice Muta said pregnant women were made to queue for long during the party nominations in January.
Muta said this discouraged most of them who went back home without casting their votes. "The IEBC should look into this matter as they prepare to conduct the elections. Pregnant women need special attention due to their condition," she said. Muta said pregnat women should be allowed to vote as soon as they arrive at the polling stations.
