Women drawn from the Kamba community have invited South Mugirango Member of Parliament (MP) Sylvanus Osoro to visit Kamba land for a 'Muthokoi' meal and a goat for the role he played in saving Peninah Malonza as Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage Cabinet Secretary in Parliament.

Jubilant women, who converged at Kitengela to celebrate Malonza approval as CS, lauded Osoro saying his argument was exemplary.

Osoro left many mesmerized during the parliamentary debate when he extensively argued that Malonza should be approved.

He also left tongues wagging when he said that Malonza could have been on her monthly period during the vetting exercise that made her perform dismally.

MP Osoro praised

Led by Kajiado East Kamba Ladies Chairlady Magret Matee, the women said they were frustrated and felt humiliated after it emerged that only a single person had failed the vetting by the parliamentary committee.

They said the move to lock out Malonza from the position was a big shame to women and painted a picture that a woman is not competent.

"We want to sincerely thank Osoro for being a women fighter. He demonstrated his understanding of women challenges so clearly that it sunk to every viewer and listener.

"As Kamba women we salute him and welcome him to Kamba land for our favorite traditional meal(Muthokoi). We will also gift him a goat. He has earned a place in women hearts," Matee said.

Matee further urged women to detest from being other women enemies but instead embrace the spirit of empowering each other.

"It is time for women leaders to stop being success barriers to their fellow women. A woman enemy is another woman tag should come to an end.

"Women should stop unnecessary competition and instead embrace each other success," she added.

They further urged women who got elective and ministerial positions to proof that they have capacity and shine in delivering in their dockets.

"Ruto government has given women an opportunity in cabinet. Those women have a burden of proof in terms of realization of development.

"The women have a responsibility of proofing wrong the people who despise women leadership. I urge Malonza and others not to go to slumber but work smart to earn respect and success," another woman, Slyvia Ndunge, added.

The women also urged President William Ruto to empower women and give them more opportunities to serve.

Malonza is among the six women Cabinet members who were sworn in today to serve in President Ruto's government.
