CS Kindiki slams the one man, one vote, one shilling slogan

Interior CS Kithure Kindiki has slammed the one man, one vote, one shilling slogan saying that it is sexist among women.

The CS noted that the principle of resource allocations rejects sectional interest to the detriment of the whole nation.

“At its best, the man-vote-shilling slogan is sexist against women. The Constitution uses the term “person” and applies the pronouns “he” or “she” together in one sentence.

As a purported principle of resource allocation, the framers of the Constitution of Kenya rejected it for its potential to fuel sectional interests to the detriment of the Nation as an indivisible whole.

Instead, a win-win framework was upheld in article 203 of the Constitution by which the principles of equality, equity and affirmative action are balanced to forge a resource allocation outcome that advances national unity, cohesion and a sense of belonging to everyone who calls Kenya their homeland.

In sharing our national wealth, the Constitution obliges us to consider “economic disparities within and among counties and the need to remedy them”, and “the need for affirmative action in respect of disadvantaged areas or groups”.

One Nation, one Flag, one People.” said Kindiki

The statement follows divided opinion on the matter by leaders from Mt. Kenya as called by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and supported by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
