20 February 2014, 21:28 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The nominee for the Commissioner of Gender and Equality Commission (GEC), Dr. Florence Nyokabi has vowed to fight the controversial homosexuality practice affecting sociocultural interaction of communities in the nation.

Nyokabi, the Recruitment Director at Public Service Commission assured the vetting Parliamentary Labour and Social Welfare committee that appointed as the GEC commissioner, she will foster gender equality, regional balance in job appointments and crusade for eradication of gay practice.

"The current challenge of homosexuality is not natural or normal to deviate our society from its rightful marriage practice since it is only a borrowed culture," said Nyokabi.

"As the appointment commissioner, the commission will monitor the extend of homosexuality in the country basing on fundamental cultural provisions of our communities in addressing the issue," she added.

Nyokabi stated that she will work with various relevant institutions to foster the dynamic gender and equality issue by prioritizing the current neglected boy-child.

"The boy-child has been neglected in programmes advocating gender and equality, thus, I will ensure that the matter is not just address superficially at the national level but deeply down at the local level," noted Nyokabi.

She said the discrimination of the boy-child in equality gender-based initiatives has led to rising school drop-out rate, drug abuse, lack of commitment in life and criminal acts.

Nyokabi also said a lot of effort should be put in to empower women especially to be risk takers in the activities to compete effectively with men despite having minimal economic opportunities.

Dr. Alawi Abdullahi, a private consultant in Gender and Equality Monitoring and Evaluation Research also assured that appointed as the GEC commissioner, he will ensure people's rights are respected in an effort to foster gender equality.
