Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka will today host a delegation from the Kenya Women Parliamentarians Association (KEWOPA) at the Wiper headquarters in Karen. The meeting is expected to take off from 12 Noon.

The meeting between KEWOPA members and former Vice President comes in the wake of a new Bill on the two-thirds gender rule to be debated in the National Assembly tomorrow.

Sources confirmed to masscomkenya that KEWOPA members are lobbying to have their male counterparts in parliament to support the bill which is being moved by leader of Majority Aden Duale.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday asked MPs to pass the two-thirds gender rule set to be tabled in the National Assembly tomorrow.

Uhuru told legislators to ensure that they act accordingly and fully implement the Constitution by passing the Bill that is sponsored by National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale.

Speaking at a fundraiser at PCEA Berea Church in Gachororo, Juja town, Uhuru said the Bill will pave way for women in the country to rise to top government positions as well as bring an end to the gender imbalance in the country.

“I know some people are saying that the Bill will increase the country’s wage bill. But the earlier Bill has been amended and the seats that have been set have decreased according to our constitution. I therefore humbly request the MPs to pass the Bill so that we can prove that we have fully heeded to what our constitution requires of us,” Uhuru said.
