DAILY NATION- Women, youth join State jobs furore

The appointment of 26 parastatal heads by President Kenyatta has continued to attract criticism.

Most leaders said women and youth were short-changed and regional diversity was ignored.

National Gender and Equality Commission chairperson Winfred Lichuma said the appointments went against gender and inclusion principles envisaged in the Constitution.

“We are disturbed that the appointments appear to fly in the face of gender equality and inclusion principles for the women, youth and persons with disability as espoused by the letter and spirit of the Constitution,” she said.
