dc.description.abstractThe research is based on the 2:1 gender ratio imposed on the August House by Article 81(b).This is the Constitution’s historically motivated assertion of its aspiration enshrined in its Article 27(8) of not more than two-thirds of members constituting elective or appointive bodies to be of one gender. The Article further calls for affirmative action programs, policies as well as legislation to ensure the minority gender is bolstered into spaces where they have not been adequately represented. The targeted gender is stipulated in Article 100; women. Of the bodies charged with the realisation of this 2:1 gender ratio in parliament, the paper narrowed in on 4- the Judiciary, Legislature, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) as well as Political Parties. Upon scrutinising their roles vis-à-vis their efforts towards the Gender Principle, the paper finds a disconnect. A lack of accountability, disrespect for the rule of law and the inexecution for the measures set by the existing laws plague the realisation of the envisaged reform intended by law. This led to it concluding that until there is full respect of the rule of law and the indiscriminate implementation of the current laws, there lies no guarantee or premise that a new or change in laws would lead to a change of heart, mind, narrative or systemen_US
