DAILY POST: WAMATANGI reveals why MPs even those from Jubilee embarrassed UHURU by rejecting the Two Third Gender Bill – No one saw this coming



Friday November 30, 2018 – Kiambu Senator, Kimani
Wamatangi, has revealed why the Two Third Gender Bill flopped in Parliament on
Wednesday.
Speaking during a talk show on Citizen TV on Friday, Wamatangi said the
proposed law should not have flopped had the Government read the mood of the
country and shelved tabling of the much-publicised Bill.

“I do not think the time was right to introduce this Bill.”

“There has been a lot of complaints that the legislature is
overloaded affecting the wage bill.”

“What the citizens are saying is not what politicians are
saying,” he said.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, backed by all
leaders in the opposition had appealed to MPs in their respective parties to
vote for the gender parity Bill which seeks to increase the number of women in
Parliament.
However, the MPs defied their leaders on Wednesday opting to stay away
during the vote, a move that forced Leader of Majority in Parliament, Aden
Duale, to seek its deferment over a quorum hitch.
The Bill will be introduced in the House again in February 2019.
