High court rules against a 50-50 wealth split n divorce

It’s a huge blow to the Federation of Women Lawyers after High Court Judge Justice John Mativo rejected  FIDA’s application for the repeal of section 45 (3) of the act, that states couples should get what they contributed to family wealth.

The ruling means that upon divorce couples will not have to share their wealth equally. The blow saw FIDA argue that the law unfairly discriminated against women whom it said were always more disadvantaged after the dissolution of marriages.
