"Out of shape" female voter rights

Ever wondered how on God’s good earth it gets so hard to pass a female- friendly bill in parliament despite the fact that ladies are the majority voters. It is simply because their voting rights are so unhealthy and out of shape.

Instead of the ladies “exercising” their voting rights, they allow these rights to be “taken for a ride”. The voting rights develop no “muscle” to even shift a comma in a bill or legislation.

There are a few bills from FIDA pending in parliament. These bills, if and when debated by the male dominated parliament, will result in watered down versions. they will suffer the same fate suffered by the sex-offenders bill proposed by one Njoki Ndung’u.
