Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has finally announced his new cabinet, electing seven women to ministerial posts.

Two weeks ago the president angered many when he failed to nominate a single woman in his cabinet shakeup, which saw him drop all five serving female ministers.

On Monday, hundreds of women marched through the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, calling on President Kenyatta to uphold the constitution.

Under Kenyan law, one-third of government positions must be filled by women.

This is yet to happen in practice, though Mr Kenyatta's cabinet does now meet the requirement.
