Former Deputy Communications Minister, Victoria Hammah, has described it as a betrayal on the part of Francisca Lamini to reject a trip to Dubai sponsored by Kenyan Airwaves.
Francisca Lamini is reported to have turned down the offer on grounds that her two colleagues were not included in the list of beneficiaries.
Y’all know that Francisca Lamini has become a national sensation following her exploits in the 2021 NSMQ.
Although Lamini has been hailed as a team player by many for rejecting the free trip to Dubai, Victoria Hammah believes that her action is coming from a point of ignorance.
Vicky Hammah stated in a Facebook post on Sunday, December 5, 2021, reminded Lamini that she is reaping the benefit of years of activism by women and that her action is a slap in the face of feminism.
“This is not heroism but attack against Gender Affirmative Action! This “brave” girl hasn’t yet understood the world.
“She is yet to recognize that her singular celebratory experiences from the competition results from centuries of activism towards women’s liberation and that the reward wasn’t only for her but for the collective struggles of all women.
“She is only benefitting from the works and struggles of women and men before her who have and continue to fight for a gender balance society.
“It’s unfortunate that, she rejects this justifying affirmative action reward to her. And all those who applaud her for rejecting the reward extended to her, similarly also lack the historical understanding of women’s liberation struggles,” she posted on Facebook.
