Only six women are gunning for MCA seats across six wards in Nyaribari Chache constituency.
According to records from the electoral commission 96 candidates are contesting to be in the Assembly in next week's General Election.
However, the number of women in the race, as low as it is, some significant increase compared to the few that participated in the 2013 polls.
In Kiamokama, three women vying for the ward representative seat. They include Beatrice Onkoba (Kanu), Gladys Omato (PDP) and Askah Michieka (Ford Kenya).
Masimba, Gesusu and Nyamasibi wards have one female candidate each eyeing the seat.
