KEMEA concerned about barriers to women’s participation in politics in Kenya

Ten years after Kenya’s new Constitution which makes it a legal imperative for increased women’s participation in politics – that women occupy at least a third of all seats in Parliament and a third of all appointed political positions – barriers still make it difficult for women’s full participation. Women from all political divides expressed their exasperation on the status quo at a recent forum marking the 10th anniversary of the country’s new Constitution. Kenya MenEngage Alliance echoed their concerns in this conversation with Khopotso Bodibe, Communications & Media Specialist for MenEngage Africa Alliance.
