Women and the youth should have equal representation in leadership, an organisation has said.
Women and Youth Leadership Alliance chairperson Jedidah Wanyeki said the government should acknowledge their hard work and passion.

“We need to change from the traditional perception when women were not allowed to be leaders. Our women have what it takes and can develop the nation,” she said.

Wanyeki spoke during a meeting with women and youth from all the 47 counties in Nairobi yesterday.
She urged those without voter cards to register and elect more women and youth next year.

Secretary general Jasiel Njau said youth and women should work together for affirmative action to succeed.
He said those at the grassroots need to be educated on equal representation.
