The National Speaker Justin Muturi is under more fire following accusations from a section of women Mps of harassment at a time he’s exposed to the wrath of Kenyans following a suggestion that Women rep posts be scrapped.
Speaking in Kisumu at different events Kisumu County Women Rep Rose Nyamunga said snatching them the positions would a mount to declaring war against the female gender and by extension girl child.
Nyamunga noted that their presence in the parliament has created a positive impact on the girl child as opposed to before when the girl child received less attention from political leadership mostly dominated by male.
She cited an example of Uwezo Fund and table banking which have been largely championed by the women representatives to help women and youth groups in the counties.

‘’We have been active in parliament and it’s very clear that we have introduced numerous bills and motions that touch on the lives of women in the rural area’’ she added.
Mrs. Nyamunga revealed that the Speaker has on several attempts thwarted their move to contribute in the August house and would always demand that they bow down to him in a King like manner before they are given a chance to talk.
