A former mayor in Kisii town, Kisii County has said that for graft to end in this country, more women should be allowed to take up leadership roles. 

Clare Omanga the first woman to be elected as mayor said corruption will continue in this country because more men are in power, unlike women. 

"Men in power will continue embezzling public funds meant for development. President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga must push for the passage of the gender rule so that this country can have more women in power," she said. 

According to her, women will be good managers of public funds. 

He appealed to male politicians not to fear women in politics because women will be accountable when it comes to the expenditure of public funds. 

"There is no need for men to fear women. All we want as a country is to have more women in power so that public funds will not be lost in the hands of greedy men," she noted. 

She challenged women to turn out in large numbers and seek elective posts to increase the number of women in leadership.
