RE: FIDA KENYA ELECTS NEW CHAIRPERSON- REACTION TO THE STATE OF THE NATION ADDRESS

FIDA Kenya elected its new Governing council yesterday chaired by Mrs Josephine Wambua- Mong`are. Whilst this new team congratulates the president for his State of Nation address that enumerated the achievements and the challenges of the Jubilee Government for the last 3 years, The Council is concerned that the president did not highlight the steps that the Jubilee Government has taken to ensure that the country realizes the 2/3rds Gender Principle.

FIDA Kenya hoped that the president would highlight the measures his Government has put in place in line with the spirit of the constitution and the Jubilee Government manifesto to ensure that the country realizes this important milestone.

FIDA Kenya appeals to the president to rally the members of parliament to objectively consider and pass the Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill no.4 of 2015 currently before parliament.

The elected FIDA Kenya Governing council members are;

  • Josephine Wambua-Mongàre - Chairperson
  • Grace C. Nyongesa - Vice Chairperson
  • Faith Mony Adhiambo – Secretary
  • Nancy Kang`ethe Ikinu- Treasurer
  • Roselyne Odede- Upcountry Representative(Western)
  • Jacqueline Waihenya- Upcountry Representative(Coast)
  • Betty Achieng- Council Member
  • Lily K. Musinga- Council Member
  • Edna Bosibori- Council Member

FIDA Kenya is confident that these great women will steer the organisation to greater heights and promote the agenda of women rights in Kenya.

With thanks – Christine Ochieng

FIDA Kenya Executive Director
