Women laud Kenyatta's Cabinet

26 April 2013, 15:46 Steve Wambugu

A section of women leaders from Nakuru and Laikipia counties lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto for nominating women in powerful cabinet positions.

Addressing media on Friday, former Nyahururu deputy mayor Irene Wachuka said the gesture by the duo was a clear indication that they had the goodwill to ensure that women participate actively in national politics.

“We are very happy to see that women have been given powerful positions by the our leaders in the government and that is a good thing,” she said.

She said that for many years, women were only appointed to head low key ministries or serve as assistant ministers yet most of them have academic credentials strong enough to head powerful ministries.

However, Wachuka took issue with those criticizing the appointment of Charity Ngilu to head the Lands, housing and urban development ministry saying that that Ngilu has the experience needed to propel the economy of the country to the next level.

“Those leaders who are saying Ngilu doesn’t deserve the post are not being realistic because they are forgetting that Charity has wide experience,” she added.       

At the same time, Wachuka challenged those nominated to work hard once cleared by the vetting committee in order to show the world that women are capable of providing focused leadership.
