Kenya’s Chief Justice David Maraga Monday advised President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve parliament for its failure to enact a law on gender balance. This follows revelation that the Mr. Maraga received at least six petitions calling for the dissolution of parliament.
The CJ has petitions from the Law Society of Kenya, former Marakwet West MP David Sudi, Margaret Toili, Fredrick Mbugua, Bernhard Aoko and Stephen Owoko. They all argue that parliament has deliberately refused to enact the law.
This comes barely 3 months before Maraga retires in January 2021 – with the move bound to have huge constitutional and political ramifications.
