Demonstrations are taking place across major cities in Kenya to protest against the rising cases of femicide and other violence against women.
Hundreds have gathered in Nairobi, Nakuru, Mombasa, Nyeri and Lodwar, some carrying placards with the names of those who were killed.
“I am here because I’m angry,” 33-year-old Winnie Chelagat told the BBC.
“It is wrong, we are tired and we want something to be done about it.”
A 2022 survey found at least one in three Kenyan women had endured physical violence at some point in their lives and according to a protester, Micheal Onyango, men and boys must take responsibility for their own actions instead of the burden being on women and girls to protect themselves.
Saturday’s protests follow a series of gruesome murders of women – including one victim, later named as Rita Waeni, whose dismembered remains were found stuffed into a plastic bag at an Airbnb rental apartment.
“We should educate our sons and tell them that they need to stop killing women.”
