Are Kenyan Women Taking over The Judiciary?

The kenyan judiciary is going on the map due to the trend exhibited in it's leadership, many major slots being taken by women.

As the hunt for a Chief Justice to replace CJ David Kenani Maraga, who retired on 12th January 2021 comes to an end, the new CJ is a lady. Martha Koome, 61, is David Maraga's successor and she is going to be the first female Chief Justice and the third CJ in Kenya since formation of the 2010 constitution. Photo of Hon. Martha Koome below:

While we wait for Martha Koome to be sworn as the Cheif Justice, deputy of the president of the supreme court, lady Judge Philomena Mwilu is the acting Chief justice. Ms. Mwilu works under Hon. John Robert who has served as the president of the supreme court since 2005. A photo of Philomena Mwilu below:

Hon. Lady Justice Lydia Achode is the principal judge of the High Court.

Surprisingly, the principal of the Employment and Labour court is also a lady Justice Maureen Anyango.

The chief registra of the judiciary is Ann Otieno Amadi in the photo below:.

Women are really taking up leadership roles not only as wives but also national leaders.The judiciary is just an example of the field where women are thriving.

Do you think this is the rise of females and do you think we would have a female president some time?
