Activist Boni Mwangi has stated that Chief Administrative Secretary of the Ministry of Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs, Rachel Shebesh, has no moral authority to speak about Gender based violence.
This he says is because Shebesh allegedly had chance to have a rich man who assaulted her prosecuted her and instead asked for sh 100 million to withdraw the case.
We must #EndFemicideNow. Unfortunately, Shebesh has no moral authority to speak about Gender Based Violence. She had a chance to have a rich man who assaulted her prosecuted but it's alleged she asked for Sh100 million to withdraw the case https://t.co/0TEZ19xsJ1 #HerLifeMatters pic.twitter.com/HOihSnBXzh

On Saturday, September 23, 2013, after a heated altercation, Nairobi Governor, Evans Kidero incensed by a raid at his office by Women representative Rachel Shebesh, let loose and off went a slap.
It was probably one of Kenya’s most shocking confrontations- that a Kenyan leader had slapped a woman right under the noses of a twaddle of journalists whose cameras were whirring and clicking away.
Shebesh had stormed Kidero’s office accompanied by disgruntled workers demanding for answers from the governor on a workers strike that had stalled operations in the city.
Always wondered why she didnt press charges after that nasty display

Shebesh not pressing charges led to Boniface calling her a sell out.
Fact is Shebesh sold out for 12 pieces of silver. Withdrew the case. Then disappeared. pic.twitter.com/WFX71y6fH0

Do you agree with Boni or refute the claims?
