Women in Cen­tral have since Tues­day been protest­ing over the re­marks made by MPS Jo­hana Ngeno of Emu­rua Dikirr and Kapseret’s Os­car Sudi.

Led by Ki­ambu deputy governor Joyce Ngugi, the women said they were an­gered by the ut­ter­ances tar­get­ing Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and his fam­ily.

The women al­leged that the re­marks were in­cit­ing. In Ki­ambu county, the protests were wit­nessed in Wangige, Ki­ambu town, Ruiru, Juja and Gatundu town.

Women marched round Ki­ambu town, de­mand­ing that the two MPS apol­o­gise to Uhuru and for­mer First Lady Mama Ngina.

Ngugi said in­volv­ing Mama Ngina was dis­re­spect­ing all women in the coun­try.

“It shows the two lead­ers have no re­gards for women,” she said.

Ki­ambu nom­i­nated MCA Nduta Muongi urged lead­ers not to drag names of par­ents or spouses of lead­ers into po­lit­i­cal talk.
