Bodyguards attached to Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris whisked her away to safety after activists protesting rising femicide cases heckled her.

The group, which descended into disarray, denounced the MP, claiming that she had chosen to remain silent in the face of an increasing number of women being killed in the country.

“Where were you? Go home! Where were you!” The activists protested against the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) MP who had attempted to address them at Jevanjee Gardens.

Passaris was also forced to climb down from a makeshift podium after the crowd blocked her from speaking.

Attempts by the organizers to restore calm were futile, forcing Passaris to resort to joining the protesters in their walk instead.

Meanwhile, her bodyguards who were keen on safety led her aside, to address the press a distance away from the podium.

Defending the rude interruption Passaris clarified that she understood where the crowd was coming from and that their anger was justified.

She noted that she has been actively on the wall pushing for the protest and will even move the issue to parliament as a legislator.

“I actually suggested we give the petition to parliament it should be a national disaster,” Passaris stated.

The protest followed recent surges in the systematic killing of women and girls in general because of their gender.

According to recent data released by Africa Data Hub,12 women have been killed due to femicide in the last 24 days.
