Women are in a unique position to help fight corruption from the family unit. Speaking in an Embu hotel , Cabinet Secretary Ms Sicily Kariuki urged women countrywide to ensure public funds are utilized properly for enhanced development.

The Cabinet Secretary for Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs was addressing women leaders from the eight Counties in the Eastern Region under the Maendeleo ya Wanawake Organisation who are undergoing a three-day capacity building workshop by the National Anti-Corruption Campaign Steering Committee.
Ms Kariuki called on women to ensure people register as voters in large numbers so as to exercise their democratic right to vote in leaders of integrity. She noted that it was corruption if Kenyans were unable to vote in leaders of their choice solely because they had no Identity or Voters' Cards.
Speaking during the same function which was also attended by MYWO National Chair Mrs Rahab Muiu, the NACCSC Ag Director Mr David Gathii urged Kenyans not to be negatively influenced as they register as voters in preparation for the General Elections.
