Women shy from top jobs

24 October 2011, 17:09

Nairobi – According to the Daily Nation, women candidates have been discouraged by the public interviewing for top jobs, and this in turn has made it difficult to achieve the gender compliance rule according to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

Speaking to the media, Rose Mambo, chair of the Association of Professional Societies of East Africa (APSEA) said that most women fear public scrutiny, terming it as “intrusive”, and as a result avoid applying for public service jobs which they are often fully qualified for.

Mambo said that as a result they have had to re-advertise the position of chairperson in the EACC since there were inadequate applications received from females to ensure compliance with the one-third gender representation rule of the Constitution.

The implementation of the new Constitution has seen a big change in the recruitment of persons into key government jobs.
