The lobby group filed a suit on Thursday asking the court to find that Uhuru Kenyatta defied its orders on two third gender rule.

Last year, The High Court faulted the Head Of State for overlooking two third gender rule and ordered he should ensure that a third of the position go to either men or women in the new appointments or else it would disband it.

In his declaration,High Court judge Joseph Onguto said that the constitution has to be followed to the letter regardless whether it is appointive or elective positions in Government.

“A declaration is hereby issued that the President has acted in contravention of the Constitution in nominating, appointing and maintaining a Cabinet that does not meet the two third gender requirement,” ruled Justice Onguto.

The judge,however, deferred his final verdict on whether to disband the previous Cabinet noting that elections were just eight months away and it would be difficult for the Government to operate without it for the short period.

The Group has again moved to court , arguing that the current cabinet does not reflect compliance of initial court orders and that it should not carry out any business or even its members earn until the case is heard and determined.

Out of the 23 CSs the head of State picked for his second term, 17( 73.9 percent) are men, women are six.

The lobby argues that the right composition ought to have either gender being 66.7 percent.

“To the extent that the  Cabinet fails the test of legality under Article 27(8) then as established is in violation of the Article  and hence any action, decision, policy or directive made by the Cabinet as a body or the individual Cabinet Secretaries are a nullity in law,” lawyer Waikwa Wanyoike said as quoted by The Standard .
