Activist Boniface Mwangi has jumped into defense of women by criticizing those that are against women in spiritual and religious leaderships.

He says women just like their counterpart of men have the right to be what they want to be.

“Why so some men feel that women can't be Priests, Popes, Sheikhs and Kadhis?” tweeted Mwangi.

He wondered what criteria do people use to gauge the suitability of a woman to be a Pope, Priest, Sheik or a Kadhi.

The former photojournalist further insinuated that God could be a woman or does not exist in the shapes that are in their minds.

Boniface Mwangi's tweet comes barely weeks after a section of Muslim women says it's time for a woman to take over as Chief Kadhi. The position of the current incumbent Chief Kadhi Sheikh Ahmed Muhdhar tenure is ending soon and it's said that Muhdhar is in support of their call.

However their calls has since met resistance from Muslim men among them is Garissa Township MP Aden Duale who said religion has placed women in high esteem with clearly defined roles by each gender adding that the function of Kadhi is not a woman's role.

“We will not accept women Kadhi. It is not found anywhere in the Holy Quran or the teaching of the Prophet,” Duale ranted.

A section of netizens seems to supported Duale's statement with others saying religions are led by rules.
