Kenya Faces Femicide Crisis: Men’s Silence and Social Media Backlash

Ahead of a nationwide protest against femicide in Kenya, a disturbing clip surfaced on social media, highlighting entrenched misogyny.

In the video, two men argue against the need for the protest, with one threatening violence towards women.

While activists like Boniface Mwangi urge men to speak out, Felix Kiprono of Odipo Dev faces backlash for a report on rising female killings.

He notes men’s reluctance to engage in discussions on gender-based violence online. However, figures like DJ Moz are taking a stand, calling for action from religious institutions and society to combat misogyny.

Despite progress, shedding toxic masculinity in Kenya remains a long-term challenge.
