The matter of gender inequality in the country has been a matter of concern to many in the country, and this has led to the the Jubilee Government being on the receiving end for failing to implement it.

Their recent trolling came earlier last year on September 21st when the then Chief Justice David Maraga advised President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve the Parliament for failing to pass the two-thirds gender rule laws.

The former President of the Supreme Court of Kenya further said that Parliament's failure to enact a law to operationalize the provision in the Kenyan Constitution amounted to an act of impunity.

Even though he was unsuccessful in convincing President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve the Parliament, the matter is still of big concern to Kenyans.

And as the BBI Bill which has a proposal touching on gender rule has already been tabled at many County Assemblies for discussion, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has today come up with his own proposal that he alleges will finally put to bed the matter of gender inequality.

Taking to his Facebook account, the vocal legislator gave Kenyans a sneak peek into his gender rule proposal that he would be tabling to the National Assembly later today in the afternoon.

He said that he would propose for the retention of the 47 Women Representatives in the National Assembly and also 47 Women Representatives in the Senate.

Hon. Kuria also said that he would push for the retention of 3 women Members of Parliament in the National Assembly to represent the people with disabilities, which would in turn allegedly ensure that women get 19% automatic representation even before the elections.

He also said he would be pushing for the further improvements through political parties, which would in turn avoid alleged nomination of the 180 MPs as per the current BBI proposals.

His post comes amidst the various County Assemblies in the country currently debating the BBI Bill with the counties of Busia, West Pokot, Siaya, Homa Bay and Kisumu already having passed the Bill.

In the BBI proposal of Gender Equality it proposes abolishment of the 47 Women Representatives' seats and instead recommends for the election of 94 Senators, a man and a woman from the previous 47 Senators.

It also pushes for the scrapping of 16 members previously nominated by political parties.

The Bill also proposes for retention of 2 women and 2 men representing the people with disabilities, and also recommends for a 360-member house where 290 MPs will be elected and 70 MPs will be nominated by political parties.

Out of the 70 seats, 35 seats would be women and all will be allocated based on the strength of actual votes cast per counties, and thus will boost the numbers of women in the houses.
