Senator Kithure Kindiki has now declared his support for the referendum.
While speaking during the ongoing 6th Devolution conference in Kirinyaga, the senator proposed that the post of the second in command should be reserved for women.
Kindiki said that women should be given more roles in the leadership of this nation.
“Senator @KithureKindiki urges that the referendum amendment should include the requirement of a male presidential candidate to name a female deputy president, and vice versa,” he said.
Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana also rooted for women to be included in administrative roles.
He challenged women to go on strike if they are not allowed to participate in the leadership of the country.
Kibwana, who is considered one of the best performing governors, noted that women have been sidelined in some positions, which has affected them in different ways.
“Governor @governorkibwana has urged women to go on strike if the provision for increasing women participation in leadership is not acknowledged in the referendum,” read the tweet.
Kibwana also backed the creation of the post of the Prime Minister and two deputies as the push for a referendum gains momentum.
The county boss feels that an amendment in the law will ensure the nation realizes better leadership in the coming years.
