Division over CJ Maraga's advice to the President

By - - [Politics]

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has fired back after Chief Justice David Maraga advised President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve Parliament for failing to enact the Two-Thirds gender rule.

Muturi said Parliament should not be used as a punching bag, further adding it was 'unrealistic' to call for its dissolution for failing to enact the gender law.

"We must not lose sight of the real challenges in implementing this matter and turn Parliament into a punching bag on account of gender parity," he said in a statement on Monday.

He further said, "The clamour for dissolution of the current Parliament on account of failure to enact the two-third gender legislation is at the very least, unrealistic."

In an advisory dated September 21, Maraga had called for dissolution of Parliament in response to six petitions seeking his advice on the matter.

"The petitions are based on the ground that despite four court orders compelling Parliament to enact the legislation... Parliament has blatantly failed, refused, or neglected to do so...." Maraga said.
