The chaos erupted at Jevanjee Gardens when Passaris attempted to address the crowd but was met with a chorus of disapproval.

The impassioned activists, chanting “Where were you? Go home! Where were you!” disrupted the politician’s attempts to speak, forcing her to abandon a makeshift podium. Passaris’s bodyguards swiftly intervened, whisking her away to safety amidst the heated confrontation.

Earlier in the day, Passaris had taken a leading role in a protest march against the alarming surge in femicide cases.

She emphasized the crucial role of the judiciary in handling cases promptly and locking up perpetrators.

The impassioned Women Representative also stressed the need to tackle the root causes of violence, advocating for well-funded and trained police to combat gender-based violence.

Notably, other female Parliamentarians joined the chorus, urging President William Ruto to declare femicide and Gender-Based Violence a national disaster.

The Kenya Women Parliamentary Association (KEWOPA) added their voice to the cause, calling for expedited investigations by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and the Inspector General of Police into ongoing femicide cases.
