The girls president, (El Presidente de las Chicas), Madam Gladys Boss Shollei has declared that the women of Kenya shall join their male counterparts during this year’s Men’s Conference scheduled to take place mid next month.
According to Boss, there is nothing to hide about that warrants the men to have a Conference on their own and in undisclosed location. “What is so secretive that you guys want to have conference away from us? We are your mothers, sisters, wives, girlfriends, mpangos just name them. Even the Bible teaches that we came from your ribs and we are meant to be your helpers. What is it that you think we don’t know about you? Mothers carried you for 9 months in their wombs, wives see how you sleep funny and snore. Some of you even urinate on beds. What are you hiding?” she posed.

Plans were already underway to hold a women’s conference parallel to the men’s, and was scheduled to be hosted in Malindi tourist resort in Kilifi County. However this has been cancelled in order to allow women to fully participate along side the men. The Girls’ Council Secretary for Coordination of Programs who is also the Council’s Chief Whip Gertrude Mbeyu – the Kilifi Women Rep has confirmed that indeed the Malindi conference had been canceled and all efforts are now set towards the joint conference. “Yes the women’s conference has been cancelled, and we are fully set for the men’s conference. As you can see, our conference was organized on an open platform. Everyone including the children knew the venue and dates. But for the men its all a hide and seek game. We want to attend and show them how things are done” she said. “To add on, let them read to the mood of the time. If Tangatanga were able to join Kieleweke for the BBI Forum in Mombasa, where is the big deal with us joining our ” men”? She laughed off.
The president also emphasized that the year 2020 is the year of nothing but the truth. “Si tulisema hii mwaka ya 2020 ni ya kuambiana ukweli? Mbona sasa tujitenge makundi mingi? Let the men prepare to host us. We shall leave no stone unturned” She added.

Kenyan women in the Diaspora are also set to participate. Delegates from Europe, Arabia, Asia and the Americas are expected back home in the beginning of February. The Girls’ Secretary for Foreign relations and Diaspora affairs and networks, Sue Gacambi has confirmed that indeed Kenyan ladies are set to attend from the diaspora. “We have registered over 70 confirmations. We hope the numbers will rise to beyond 200. As usual we Kenyans are good at last minute reactions. We have a lot to share back home especially on treatment of women in foreign land. We shall have emphasis to the Arab league. Things aren’t good out here as you people are meant to think. Tunaumia”. She hanged.
The Girl’s Council boasts of a membership of over 23 Million members, and a strong network based on the ” chama” system. Their Battle Cry to the Men’s Convention being “Kanyaga Kanyaga”
Already the Chairperson of the Men’s Conference Mzee Kibor has reiterated on several occasions that nothing can stop this years Men’s Conference. “Neither the War in Iran nor Locust invasion in our farms can stop our meeting” Kibor insisted. Uji Moto is however yet to get his opinion on the Women’s intention to attend the Conference.

Gender experts are waiting to see the outcome of the conference should the ladies make it to the convention. This will for sure take the scholars of feminism theory back to class.
