BBI may not resolve gender gap in Kenyan politics

Monday, November 23, 2020

Significance

The government now says the issue will be dealt with as part of the political reforms recently proposed in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

Impacts

  • The creation of new positions to accommodate more female leaders will increase the cost of government.
  • A focus on the BBI proposals will distract from addressing the spike in gender-based violence since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • There is no guarantee that the BBI proposals will be implemented in their entirety.
