Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo is reading gender bias in the incident involving Kirinyaga Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri.
The outspoken legislator wondered what would have happened had it been Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru caught in the sex scandal. According to Millie, Waiguru’s political careeer would be history.
Millie Odhiambo likened the deputy governor’s incident to the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, noting that the woman is usually on the receiving end of a sex scandal.
The MP opined that men have a better support system and women should emulate them.

Eve at the Garden of Eden all over again
When Adam failed to follow the Lord’s instructions and ate the forbiden fruit at the garden of Eden, his excuse was: ” it is the woman you gave me”. Since then you can be sure any time a Garden of Eden-like incident happens involving a man and a woman, the Garden of Eden theory sets in. The man immediately becomes an innocent by-stander only lured by an ” Eve” woman.
On the KK Devolution incident, I wonder though how the script would read if it is Governor Anne Waiguru, for instance, who was caught pants down. There would be no alternative script. She would be political history.
All men and women here supporting the DG and some making the woman an Eve, would have only one script: conduct unbecoming of a leader and she must go. Not so for men. Men- I love your support network. Women please develop such a support network for fellow women. Next time one of us is caught pants down, let us develop alternative theories. Let us not be quick to send our own to the gallows. I have many examples in the distant past.
On another note, we must have a debate about how to deal with the issue of exposing people in compromising situations especially naked. It is wrong and we must deal with it decisively. The DG may have been wrong to go randy with someone”s wife but why film it and post it on line? This should be criminalized. Perhaps the video could have been saved and used for a Chapter 6 test case. Nancy Baraza lost her position as Deputy CJ for pinching an actual nose. The DG pinched a metarphorically worse nose. KHRC and FIDA, over to you.
