The composition of President Kenyatta’s Cabinet does not meet the two third gender rule, a court has found.

Moments after making the ruling, Justice Joseph Onguto suspended the enforcement of the judgment for a period of eight months.

He also directed that after the 2017 General Election, the President should observe the two thirds gender rule.

He further noted that disbanding the current Cabinet will create unnecessary issues in the country since the country is already in election mood.

Centre for Rights Education and Awareness and the National Women’s Steering Committee Chairperson Marilyn Muthoni Kamuru said there was no gender balance in the cabinet.

Lawyers Waikwa Nyoike and Harun Ndubi told Justice Onguto that the Cabinet only has only five women, thus violating the two thirds gender rule.
