e all looked forward toa night full of fun andsuccess. And for sure, itwas a fruitful, memorablenight!Gichugu Member of Parliament, Hon. MarthaKarua, one of our special guests for the dinnerwas at her element best. So were the other invitedguests. It would be worth noting that Hon.Karua was attending the AMWIK FundraisingDinner, not as a chief guest but as a staunchAMWIK supporter and strong crusader of thewomen’s cause. Indeed, the MP never shies off opportunities to further the women’s cause. Inher own words, the event was top priority on herschedule of the day.On her arrival, even comedians Churchill andNyambane could not hide their admiration for‘Kenya’s next CEO.’ And also for many of theguests comprising government, corporate, civilsociety, private sector, media and diplomats, itwas total respect and admiration for a womanwho has built a reputation as a strong-willed pro-democracy and women’s rights leader.It is no secret that the Narc-Kenya leaderhas set her eyes on the highest seat on the landand she made it clear during the dinner that sheunderstands what it takes and was quite ready forthe bumpy road ahead. AMWIK wishes her wellin her bid for the presidency.On women’s leadership, mark her words:“Women are born with a natural resilienceand society ought to appreciate this fact andallow them to effectively participate in decision
making… We are tted for whatever job. All we
(Kenyans) have to do is look into our families,neighbourhood and all around us and we will seewomen working hard in various circumstances.”She further advised her lot: “To all of youwomen, Rome was not built in one day…It is not enough to whine and weep for beingleft out of decision making processes, but weought to make an effort at being at the center of activities in order to form a formidable force topropel ourselves to higher positions of decisionmaking.”The MP further called on women to advanceprofessionally if they hope to compete effectively
in the job arena, adding: ‘’I salute all men who
have supported the empowerment of womenin Kenya, your struggle is our struggle in
public, and those who have benetted from the
(AMWIK) scholarship fund should utilize theireducation to improve the marginalized groups inthe society.”She also called for concerted efforts towardsensuring that issues pertaining to womendevelopment as enshrined in the constitution areeffected to the latter.
