RWANDA elections Vs female representation

Rwanda goes to the polls sometime in August.Currently,ladies in Rwanda constitute about 56% of all the elected leaders.This is about to change.

If you've been keen enough,you must have heard a few well coordinated bombings in the capital city Kigali in the past few months.

These bombings are an attempt to scare away ladies voters from voting for lady candidates by introducing an 'atmosphere of threat'.The person behind this is hoping that true to type, lady voters will gravitate towards male candidates for "protection"! You think that this is just a conspiracy theory and it wont happen,right? Ask the Americans: it works like a charm,all the time too!

I am not a betting guy(probably because I don't have the money for it!)but if I were, I'd bet my Last pence on the female representation in Rwanda plummeting to below 30% after the August general elections!
