Kandara Member of Parliament Alice Wahome has rubbished allegations that she will be resigning after Chief Justice David Maraga’s advisory on dissolution of parliament.
Taking to twitter, the legislature said claims by Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi on her intended resignation were false.
I have seen a post by Nelson Havi LSK President circulating in the social media that I will resign from Kandara Parliamentary seat by reason of C J Maraga advisory of dissolution of Parliament. Advisory is directed against Parliament not individual members. I m not resigning

The statement comes a day after Havi took to Twitter saying the Mp was considering her resignation from the National Assembly.
CJ Maraga on Monday wrote to President Uhuru Kenyatta advising him to dissolve Parliament over its inability to pass the two-thirds gender rule.

The Chief Justice said Parliament has refused to comply with the High Court order to enact legislation required to implement the two-thirds gender rule for over nine years.
“It is incontestable that Parliament has not complied with the High Court order in Constitutional Petition No. 371 of 2016. As such, for over 9 years now, Parliament has not enacted the legislation required to implement the two-thirds gender rule which, as the Court of Appeal observed in its said judgement, is clear testimony of Parliament’s lackadaisical attitude and conduct this matter,” he said.
