A group of media observers have questioned the preparedness of the Kenya National Action Plan (NAP) which was launched last year to coordinate implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325).
Though launched with the aim of involving women, mostly in peacekeeping activities, African Woman and Child Feature Service (AWCFS) officials have, however, said the relevant ministries have yet to show a significant efforts in implementing the plan.
During a dialogue with editors on the role of the media in the actualisation of NAP for implementation of the resolution, AWCFS gender expert Jane Godia said women are still greatly affected by violence.
“The General Election is almost here with us yet the most vulnerable people in our society have not been well prepared given the political tensions in the country. NAP was created because of such a time and yet we cannot see anything happening,” she said.
