The Atheists In Kenya Society applauds the nomination of Martha Karua as the running-mate nominee for the Azimio Kenya Political Coalition.
The Azimio Kenya Coalition’s decision to nominate a female running-mate places Kenyan women at the center of political leadership. This is not only the right thing to do but also the smart thing to do.
Martha Karua brings to the position years of leadership and deep expertise in civil society, human rights, constitutionalism, and democratic governance.
This decision advances gender equality and integration of women in political leadership in Kenya as envisaged in Constitution 2010.
Our society looks forward to working with Martha Karua to continue the important work of advancing the rights of women and girls in Kenya.
