The female gender have been empowered so much that they are now taking the top seats of our country. Recently, we got the first female chief justice in Kenya. The Judiciary is mostly dominated by women.
A debate has however been raised by Garrisa Township Member of Parliament Adan Duale. On his speech yesterday, he claimed that a woman cannot be appointed as a kadhi. This was a response to Chief Justice, Martha Koome as she requested women to apply for the Kadhi's Job.
According to Duale, the Kadhi's position is an islamic religion position. It cannot be compared to the Chief Justice seat which he says it's a 'Secular Position'. This has brought a heavy debate on the twitter platform. Some are in support of Duale while others are against it as it is a conflict between Religion and the Constitution. Muslims believe there are some rituals a woman cannot perform while in the Kadhi seat.
Here are some of the responses from tweeters.
