The Political Parties Registrar Anne Nderitu has condemned political parties for delaying the affirmative action in respect of persons living with disabilities. Ms Nderitu who spoke on Thursday said that PLWDs have not been to be given a conducive space push their ambitions through political parties.

She was addressing PLWDs who are officials in some of the 75 registered political parties in Kenya when she challenged political parties to shift from archaic approach and rope in the special interest group. Nderitu also challenged the political parties to deal with the divisions that exists among the PLWDs themselves.

“Affirmative action on PLWDs is slower compared with those involving women, youth, and marginalized groups …..As we think of the political space, segregation still exists, hence the place for political parties to champion the rights of these groups  …..Let us deal with segregation among disabled persons. Let’s not divide further amongst yourselves,” Nderibu said.
