MP vows to oppose gender bill

Gatanga MP Joseph Nduati has vowed to oppose the Gender Bill when it is brought to Parliament for debate.

The legislator claims current trends indicate that men are under the threat of women dominance in many public positions, hence his reason to oppose the one-third gender rule that is currently in favour of women.

“For instance, in Murang’a county the ratio of elected MPs is 50-50 for both genders. When we come to the former Murang’a South district which has four constituencies, there are three elected women MPs as compared to only one man, who happens to be me,” he said.

Nduati was speaking at Kirwara Boys High School in his constituency on Saturday during celebrations to mark the institution’s 60th anniversary and prize-giving day.

The MP commended the school management for the improved performance in KCSE exam which saw it clinch the second position in Gatanga sub-county in last year’s results.

He told boys to rise to the occasion and reverse an emerging challenge from girls who have been leading in national exams recently. “The boychild is headed to oblivion and must work hard to survive,” Nduati said.

The school principal James Gitau urged the students to continue working hard to remain tops in the sub-county.
