Looming police strike worries women

07 November 2012, 13:50 Steve Wambugu

pA cross-section of women leaders in Nakuru County - under the Nakuru County Women Elders Peace Forum - has called on the government to initiate a dialogue with the police to avert a planned strike.

Led by the forum’s chairlady Teresiah Wanjiku Ngigi, the women said that the country could be headed for a major security crisis if the government hesitates to address payment issues raised by the police.

Teresiah was speaking in Nakuru on Wednesday after a consultative meeting organized by a local NGO dubbed Mercy corps.

She urged the government to take security matters seriously, considering that the country is already in a campaign mood.

She pointed out that women in the entire country are concerned about the impending strike because they are the ones who suffer the most in case of eventualities resulting from strikes.

She also urged the Internal Security Minister Katoo Ole metito to act fast and ensure that every Kenyan remains secure before, during and after the general elections slated for March 2013.

Meanwhile the Mercy corps Programmes Director Nancy Koech said that they have initiated a Programme aimed at sensitizing women on leadership and governance as well as building capacity in peace.
