Kenya’s Kiambu County Governor William Kabogo (pictured) is in a heap of hot water for making controversial statements that may have demeaned women everywhere. Now, after an onslaught of criticism from nations all over the globe, the good governor has humbled himself by apologizing to single women, according to the BBC.

Kabogo’s incendiary words were reportedly directed at unmarried single Mother and parliament member Alice Ng’ang’a who reportedly opposed his new levies. Kabogo accused Ng’ang’a of inciting traders against his proposed taxes because she reportedly called them “unreasonable charges and [a] tax on the people.” Last week, Kabogo spoke at a rally, saying:

If you are 35 and don’t have a husband, there is something wrong… We will start demanding that you are married before you are elected. You, young ladies, look for husbands and get married. You are the ones causing problems. Someone who is able to manage a home is equally able to run the affairs of the people. But if you cannot manage a home … can you manage public affairs?

Kabogo’s diarrhea of the mouth raised the ire of Rukia Subow, chairperson of the women’s lobby group  Maendelea ya Wanawake, who referred to the comments as “discriminatory.”  Subow told the Daily Nation, leadership is about brains not skirts.”

After Kabogo, 49, who just happens to have six women in his eight-member cabinet, experienced incredible backlash from his reported comments, he publicly apologized and maintained that he was misquoted, “I seek forgiveness to all those that I have offended in the course of my life. On my side, I forgive all those who have sinned against me.”
