  • The meeting was postponed in what was termed as unavoidable circumstances. 
  • The meeting has been rescheduled to next week. 

There was drama at the Sagana State Lodge on Monday after over 100 women staged protests demanding an audience with President Uhuru Kenyatta. 

This is after President Uhuru postponed the consultative meeting with the women.

The women who claimed they were not informed of the sudden postponement told the media that they had left home as early as 3 am on Sunday to make it in time for the consultative forum. 

“We had been invited here for a meeting. We arrived by 5 am now police officers are telling us to go home, that there is no meeting here today,” Milcah Wamatu said.

On Monday morning, they were met by police officers who told them that the head of state wound his meeting at the lodge on Sunday.

The women who claimed to have been harassed by police officers vowed to pitch a tent at the State Lodge until they got an audience with President Uhuru. 

On Monday, in a statement sent out to media houses, State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena said the president’s consultative meeting with Central Kenya women leaders and the clergy had been postponed to next week due to unavoidable circumstances.
