Hon. Dr. Evans Kidero, Hon. Mike Sonko, Hon. Rachel Shebesh, OCPD Nairobi, General of Police, Mr. Kimaiyo
The Kenyan parliament passed a law making stripping punishable by 10 years.

Flone Initiative works to address the brutal and criminal acts of stripping women for apparently being indecently dressed. On November 7th, 2014 a woman was stripped in the CBD for wearing a miniskirt. It is perturbing such incidences continue to happen and go un-addressed. This is a form of violation that if not addressed will continue recurring. The aim of this petition is therefore to sensitize the public about this while also demanding for legal action so that perpetrators can be brought to book. This will also send a strong message to other citizens on the same.

The constitution of Kenya 27(4) states that “The State shall not discriminate directly or indirectly against any person on any ground, including race, sex, pregnancy, marital status, health status, ethnic or social origin, colour, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, dress, language or birth.
(5) A person shall not discriminate directly or indirectly against another person on any of the grounds specified or contemplated in clause (4).

As Flone Initiative and concerned citizens of this country:
1. We demand that the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Kimaiyo arrests the culprits of these heinous acts that contravenes the spirit of our constitution.
2. We demand that the political leadership in Nairobi, the Governor Hon. Dr. Evans Kidero, the women representative Hon. Rachel Shebesh, MCA Hon. Samuel Kagiri, and Senator Hon. Mike Sonko urgently ensure the culprits are arrested and ensure that such violation of fellow human beings will not be tolerated in Nairobi
3. We demand apology from the Embassava Sacco for the brutal, criminal and heinous act that ignored human dignity carried out by their employees.

4. We call upon Kenyans and leaders to critically address the root causes of these actions and preach respect of human rights and dignity of all.
Women’s freedom should not and cannot be curtailed to serve egoistic ends.
