Aspirant decries violence

22 November 2012, 12:34 Kelvin Mureithi

An aspirant for the Meru County women’s representative, Florence Kajuju Gitonga has called on the government to provide adequate security for women aspirants during their campaign meeting saying they were being intimidated and stopped from conducting their campaign meetings peacefully.

Speaking in Meru on Wednesday during a forum dubbed "The Place of the Woman as per the Constitution 2012," Gitonga singled out the weekend’s incident at Runyenjes in Embu County where Presidential hopeful Martha Karua was barred by rowdy youths from addressing a rally in the constituency.

She termed the incident as unfortunate adding that she was worried about the security of aspirants especially now that ugly incidents were being reported in various parts of the country.

She said that as long as the security of women aspirants was threatened, their position will be weakened as they will not be able to conduct their campaigns effectively.

Gitonga who is a practicing lawyer in Meru town urged the government to ensure that people can move freely without fear and provide security for businesses and the children.

The meeting was attended by grassroots leaders from nine constituencies of the Meru County.
