Fifty three percent of Kenyans would vote for a female presidential candidate, according to a poll released on Saturday ahead of International Women’s Day to be marked on Monday.

The study conducted by Infotrak however indicates that only nine percent of the female respondents trust the political leadership of a female with majority preferring male leaders.

Infotrak CEO Angela Ambitho said the study revealed that women trust Prime Minister Raila Odinga the most (30 percent) followed by Martha Karua’s 11 percent.

“Only two women appear in the ranking- Martha Karua and Charity Ngilu and I think that should be an eye opener; if we believe that there should be more political participation in the higher echelons by women then women themselves need to go through the paradigm shift,” she said.
