    The High Court has dismissed a petition filed the Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) challenging the gender composition of the Supreme Court[​IMG] judges.
    Justices John Mwera, Mohammed Warsame and Philomena Mwilu, in a three judge constitutional bench dismissed the case saying that the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) did not breach the Constitution[​IMG] when they nominated the five judges.

    FIDA and other women lobby groups had gone to court arguing that the nomination of the five Supreme Court judges was against the Constitution on gender balance. The Constitution says that there should be no more than two-thirds of the same gender representation in public bodies.JSC had appointed Justices Philip Tunoi, Jackton Ojwang, Mohammed Ibrahim, Njoki Ndungu and Smokin Wanjala to the highest court in the land.
    The five will be sitting under Chief Justice Willy Mutunga as the head and Nancy Baraza as the Vice President of the court.
    With the dismissal of the petition, this sets stage for their swearing in.

    Kwa maana nyingine ni kuwa haki ya kikatiba inaweza kuvunjwa kama hakuna sheria za utekelezaji, sounds strange
