The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights wants dowry scrapped, saying it perpetuates gender-based violence. Assistant director Loise Munala said bride price is the main cause of violence in most families. “Instead of paying dowry, men should just give a token of appreciation to the girl’s parents for the tender care and education of their daughter,” she said.
The objective of the “One UN” is to improve the impact, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness and positioning of the UN system in Kenya to enable it better assist the country to meet the MDGs and Vision 2030. This will be achieved through One Programme, One Budgetary Framework, One Office, One Leader and Communicating as One.
