Nairobi - Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has apologized over remarks made which implied that women could not vie for leadership positions if not -married.
Kabogo apologized at a prayer meeting in Ruiru town in Kiambu, where he urged those he had wronged to forgive him and embrace forgiveness.
" I truly apologize for the comments attributed to me and ask all those that took them badly to forgive me as the bible states because I am human just like the rest of you and we all make mistakes, he said.
Kabogo was under increasing pressure to apologize over what many activists termed a gender sensitive slur, with some flaunting the idea of impeachment if he did not take back his words.
Women and female groups had already taken to the streets to demonstrate over the comments made by the controversial governor who is not new to public outcry over his administrative style.
