Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris received a hostile crowd as she joined fellow women to demonstrate against the increased death of women in the country.
Through a video shared on social media, the women could be seen calling for the immediate departure of the Nairobi Woman Rep. who then moved away from the charged crowd.
It has since been speculated that the heckles were due to her silence when the killings were happening when she is a leader and ought to have condemned the senseless murders.

Speaking after the unfortunate incident, Passaris called on President William Ruto to come out and condemn the murders saying that they are now too much and causing trauma.
“I have spoken to a few CSs and said that the President’s voice needs to be heard on this. I’m proud that our party leader Raila Odinga spoke about it two weeks ago. We need the President to speak to it and understand that the family’s of these women who have been brutally murdered have got so much trauma,” said Passaris
She continued by saying that one must be total inhumane not to feel the pain of the women.
“You’ve got to be totally inhuman not to feel the pain of these girls being killed so brutally.” she said
A total of 11 counties including Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Eldoret, Homabay, Turkana, Kilifi, Machakos, Kisii and Nyeri joined the movement against femicide.
