Likoni Member of Parliament and a Member of the Embrace women network Mishi Mboko has refuted claims that the Tononoka Embrace rally has been cancelled.
According to Mboko, the rally is still on and all the preparations necessary for a successful peace rally are complete.
While addressing journalists at Tononoka grounds in Mombasa Friday, Mboko said Embrace had a noble agenda of uniting the country since it has experienced major political and tribal divisions.
She said various political parties are included in the network so as to attain its objectives.
Healing the nation
“We want to heal our nation, this is an extension of the Building Bridges Initiative-BBI famously known as handshake, we can’t leave the initiative only to President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga to overseas it,” revealed Mboko.
She said the nation has experienced ugly political scenes which according to Mboko they should not recur.
“Who wants to see Kenyans die because of politics, who wants to experience political, tribal clashes or discrimination,” posed Ms. Mboko.
Embrace non political
Her sentiments were echoed by Mombasa Women representative Asha Hussein who said the movement is never political.
“Whoever wants to do politics let them wait for another platform or for 2022 and not under our Embrace network,” she said.
The women politicians are holding their peace rally in Kilifi County before culminating all their activities at Tononoka ground, Mombasa, Saturday.
