Women leaders have welcomed Chief Justice David Maraga’s decision advising the President to dissolve Parliament for failing to pass the 2/3rd gender rule.
Speaking in Kajiado after attending a rites of passage ceremony at Ematoroki Olngesher, the women MPs led by Homabay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga lauded Maraga for his courage saying Parliament must accept it has failed as far as the two third gender rule is concerned.
Nominated Senator Rose Nyamunga called upon the Chief Justice to uphold the constitution and support the implementation of the law without fear.
Former Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi said Maraga must ensure he leaves a legacy when his term comes to an end and the only way to be remembered is by ensuring that institutions are taken to task for failing in the mandate.
Likoni Mp Mishi Mboko said the decision to dissolve Parliament shouldn’t have come at a better time citing frustrations from their male counterparts in their attempts to adopt a legislation to enact the 2/3rd gender rule.
Kajiado East MP Peris Tobiko however urged women to seek more elective positions in the forthcoming general election even as she lauded Maraga for his stand on the gender bill.
