Maendeleo ya Wanawake Organization [MYWO] has asked leaders to respect each other and in particular the Presidency and to resolve their differences amicably.
The MYWO National Chairperson Rahab Muiu said in a press briefing at Maendeleo House, that leaders should find more efficient and honourable ways to address grievances, disputes and differences in opinions rather than calling each other names without considering the young people who look up to them as mentors and role models.
“Today we call on all leaders who in one way or another feel aggrieved to approach the President in a respectable way and I believe together they will get a solution to a better Kenya,” said Muiu.
She also affirmed the organization’s support for the President’s Big Four Agenda and the Building Bridges Initiative which she noted would give a framework to a better country where women and children are protected before, during and after elections.
The Chairperson said the organization has initiated development programs over the years, and has helped curb the water problem in the country through provision of affordable water tanks to grassroot women.
“MYWO has rolled out a water harvesting program by providing affordable water tanks to grassroots women,” said Muiu and “I acknowledge the support I receive from the MYWO National officials, the Board (NEC), their entire leadership team and the secretariat who provided technical support.”
Phoebe Asiyo the organization’s Patron and Chair of the Board of Trustees condemned the recent killing of teachers in Garissa and urged the government to provide teachers with adequate security in their area of operation.
Former nominated Senator Zipporah Kittony who is also the MYWO former Chairperson urged the President to relentlessly fight corruption, assuring of the unswerving support from all Kenyans.
