President William Ruto on Thursday hosted Kenya’s women governors at Safari Park, in Nairobi, to launch the Women Governors G7 – Strategy.

The G7 group brings together the 7 elected Governors including Council of Governors Chair Ann Waiguru, Nakuru governor Susan Kihika, Machakos governor Wavinya Ndeti, Kwale’s  Fatuma Achani, Meru’s Kawira Mwangaza and Embu’s Cecily Mbarire.

G7 Strategy aims to localize mentorship programmes set up in the women-led 7 counties and lobby for women nominations in various political parties.

”“Our vision is to have women-led counties delivering on the promise of devolution and together, l believe we can do it. I also encourage more women to take up political and governance positions and not to shy away from venturing into their field of interest,” Anne Waiguru, Council of  Governor chair said last month.

G7 outlines an increase in women’s participation in devolution and voice in decision-making, unity between women governors with women senators to deliver devolution promises and ensure good governance and financial accountability.

It also strategy seeks to empower and support women leaders in demonstrating efficient, transformational, and strategic governance within the devolved structures.
