Women politicians embraced for mothers and children

While launching the initiative in January, women politicians noted that those who are most affected by political instability are women and children.

"Our mothers endured a lot, to see us get the gains we enjoy today. We still have a long way to go.

"We must say no to laws and policies that bind us. We must be ready to deconstruct such expectations. We must be present and our presence must be felt," Governor Waiguru reiterated on Tuesday.
