FIDA decries spike in electoral-related GBV cases

Federation of Women Lawyers in Kenya (FIDA) have expressed concern over the spike in electoral related Gender Based Violence (GBV) that has affected the full exploitation of political space by women leaders ahead of the general election.

Speaking in Nakuru, Senior program officer for Women and Governance at FIDA Sophie Kaibiria said that the violence has heavily affected the operations of most of the women leaders to seek the will of the people.
“SInce late last year, we have documented the spike in the violence related to politics against women and which has slowed down their activities to move around and campaign”, she said.
Kaibiria said that FIDA has undertaken various capacity building initiatives to equip the women with skills and knowledge to handle some of the challenges that pose threat to them.
