UWIANO Mediators Training:
Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes without the need to go to court, involving an independent third party who helps both sides come to an agreement. It is a flexible process that can be used to settle disputes in a whole range of situations including potential triggers to violence in communities.
In order to improve the capacity of the members of the public to mitigate any conflicts arising from the forthcoming general elections, the Commission in partnership with other key stakeholder under the Uwiano Platform for Peace held a training session for 100 women mediators in Nakuru County from 21st to 22nd November, 2016.
The event brought together two women Mediators from each of the 47 counties who were trained on peace, conflict resolution, mediation and reconciliation in line with UN resolution 1325. The training was facilitated by NCIC’s Vice Chairperson, Mrs. Irene N. Wanyoike.
