Azimio-One Kenya coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga has assured the Muslim community of inclusivity if he is elected president come August.
Speaking during his endorsement by a section of Muslim women at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Odinga highlighted the need for society to include women.
“Women have fought to be recognised in the society besides doing most of the work, so let us all join to fight for the rights of women, I am happy for the Muslim women for coming together,” he said.
“My opponent says that he will protect the church, but forgets the Constitution protects the church. There should be no discrimination whether Muslim, Hindu or Christian,” he noted.
Earlier the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader warned the Muslim community not to be deceived by the Kenya Kwanza Alliance leader William Ruto.
He further claimed that Ruto opposed devolution, which has tremendously helped the Coast region, and the inclusion of the Kadhi Courts in the 2010 Constitution.
Likoni Member of Parliament Mboko Mishi indicated that some politicians have discriminated against the Muslim community.
“Some politicians have discriminated against us, saying that this is a Christian nation, however, this country accommodates all religions, we women should consider Baba’s manifesto. We want in every appointment a woman to be considered,” she said.
