FIDA: Elitist Or Not?

When Keriako Tobiko, arguing before the high court, labeled FIDA as “busy bodies”, the statement attracted angry reactions from the feminist movement in Kenya.

Tobiko was then in private practice ,representing former cabinet minister Julius Sunkuli in a rape case. Many saw his remarks as utterly disrespectful of FIDA . Tobiko was arguing his client’s case , which was finally withdrawn, and a whole soap opera followed. I am sure you all know the story of how the girl in question appeared on TV after withdrawing the complaint.

Rebecca Wanjiku shows why she thinks FIDA is elitist. What do you think? Have your say here.
