Kakamega County Woman Representative Hon. Elsie Muhanda led women leaders across the political divide to call for an end to the political acrimony that has led to an exchange of bitter words between leaders across the country in the past few weeks.
The women leaders faulted their male counterparts for being at the front line in starting trouble and called upon them to work on peace.
The Women caucus settled on uniting the nation asking politicians not to engage in fierce politics that has also seen a section of leaders discuss the 2022 succession politics, a quest that is likely to derail development, place the nation at the helm of heated politics and even causing mayhem ahead of the 2022 polls.
Speaking at a Kakamega hotel,  Mrs. Muhanda reiterated her efforts of uniting Kenyans through collective agreements which includes shunning hate speech among leaders.
“Kakamega will stand and defend the handshake and building bridges initiative,” declared Hon. Muhanda.
Her sentiments followed a press briefing of Women Caucus which took place in Nairobi led by Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, Homa Bay Women Gladys Wanga among other leaders who addressed matters of handshake and Building bridges initiative that has led to bonding of a once fragmented nation.
Hon. Muhanda also added that the handshake has brought the country peace and tranquility which has enabled citizens to carry out their business without fear or intimidation on both tribal and political divides.
She called upon all leaders across all political spectrum to seek unity instead of politicking.
Hon. Muhanda was accompanied by various Women leaders drawn from different political parties among them Wiper, ODM, ANC, Jubilee and Ford Kenya.
