The three women in that position made history in the Kenyan government. However, in 2022, 23 women are going to vie for the gubernatorial seat. This means that more women are likely to lead most parts of the country. Among the 23 women gubernatorial aspirants are Aisha Jumwa, Purity Ngirici, Fatuma Achani, Peris Tobiko, Ruth Odinga, Kihika Susan and Ann Waiguru who will be running again for that position.

Additionally, Speaker of the national assembly Justine Muturi urged more women to vie for various seats. They should not just wait to get nominated. This is because the two-third gender rule will never be achieved if women stop vying for different political seats.
