President Ruto's Cabinet makes a major announcement on the two-thirds Gender rule.

The two-thirds rule for enlisting and promoting public service officials will be carefully followed going forward.

According to the Cabinet, despite attempts to attain gender parity among the government's institutions, Kenya still lags behind its counterparts in this area.

The decision was made by the Cabinet on Tuesday during its fourth formal meeting, which was presided over by President William Ruto.

The fact that gender equality is one of Kenya's top priorities for UN development goals also played a role in the decision.

“The meeting reiterated that the gender equality plan remain immensely important and deeply tied to Kenya's socio-economic development. In that regard, the nation’s apex policy organ adopted a policy that seeks to foster the contribution of all Kenyans to national development by integrating Gender Equality as a key ethos of the Public Service. Consequently, going forward all recruitments and promotions within all the ranks of the public service shall uphold the Gender Rule.” read a statement from the President’s office after the meeting.
