Nairobi women have cited instances of discrimination because of their religion.

A Muslim, for instance, said shoppers blocked her from accessing a mall when Al Shabaab terrorists attacked Dusit D2 Complex, Nairobi, last year. She said the public associated her religion with terrorism. A Christian said Majengo neighbors stopped her from playing gospel songs because they are “noisy” – but they would enjoy secular music playing in other houses.

These two cases, among many more, have created a wrong perception about various religions in Kenya – a situation project, “Religious Minorities: Overcoming Divides, Respecting Rights”, wants to change. (Check more about the project here: muhuri.org/norad-project/)

Today, under this project -- in which Norad funds -- Institute for Interreligious Dialogue & Islamic Studies trained Nairobi women on religious minority rights and interreligious literacy, from their perspective.

As a lead partner in the project, we took part in the training at Tangaza University College. Women tried to answer these questions:

1. What are the main questions and gaps around religious minority rights from specifically female, gender-based perspective in the Kenyan context?
2. What are the potentials and shortcomings around interreligious literacy from specifically female, gender-based perspective in the Kenyan context?

Lamu activity

We have conducted public forums in Lamu to review Public Participation and Civic Education Policy the county developed. We held the meetings in Witu, Faza, and Lamu Island, with 90 locals taking part.

Locals urged public participation to include the marginalized groups who appear sidelined. Authorities, the meeting resolved, should make full disclosure of documents related to projects or policies, which require citizens’ input.

The forums developed a memorandum to be submitted to the County Assembly for incorporation in the final policy document.

Kilifi activity

We have conducted a Ms President dialogue forum at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Malindi. Forty-nine participants attended the meeting themed: "National security, innovations, and emerging technologies".

The forum provided a unique opportunity for participants to share different ways in which national security is threatened, particularly with regards to how such threats disadvantage women in our society.

This is an empowerment program advocating for growing support and accommodation of women in positions of influence and appreciation of their contribution to community transformation. We, therefore, sensitize attendees on the importance of gender equality as a progressive agitation for a growing democracy.

We are committed to ensuring continued advocacy for gender equality and appreciation of the role of women in nation-building and security.

This morning, two of our staff -- Mombasa County Field Officer Topister Juma and Communications and M&E Officer Ernest Cornel -- were involved in an accident in Kilifi County.

The officers were going to the Court of Appeal, Malindi for a case involving a cleric charged and found guilty of sodomising his stepson. The cleric appealed and today was the ruling. Muhuri is watching brief for the family of the victim.

They duo received an emergency treatment at Kilifi Hospital, and have since been transferred to Pandya Memorial Hospital, Mombasa for further observation.

We wish them a quick recovery.

Get well soon Topister and Cornel!
