It’s one of the biggest Facebook groups with numbers exceeding hundreds of thousands… And also,a group in which you cannot be easily admitted. It takes work – even prayers – for you to make it to the class of people already in the group.

Kilimani Mums was formed…Not to vilify and dehumanize men but to call out their flaws,to air out their weaknesses and to press for a fairer society where no one goes scot free just because they’re either a man,are moneyed or powerful.
