Kabogo won't apologise over remarks on single women

03 February 2014, 09:11

Kiambu - Kiambu Governor, William Kabogo, has publicly stated that he is not going to apologies for his remarks that unmarried women should not hold leadership positions.

The governor stood his ground saying that he owed no one any apology as alleged by a section of women leadership in the county.

“I have nothing to apologize about. People misunderstand. I have a right to say what I think is right for my part and my right stops where you rights begin and vice versa,” he said.

The governor’s remarks last week drew sharp reactions from section of women leaders who felt they were being targeted by the governor’s comments.

The groups insisted that the governor owed local women an apology.

The governor insisted that he made no mistake for speaking out his mind and that every Kenyan had the right to the freedom of speech and he was not an exception to the right.

Kabogo has in the past sparked debate in public arena over his remarks.

It is alleged the controversial governor whitewashed his opponents in public by use of such remarks.

He refuted such allegations.
