President Uhuru's decision in the appointment of Judges has continued to attract various views. In an interview, Lawyer Danstan Omari hit President Uhuru with hard facts. He warned him of what next to expect.
''The president decided to appoint 34 judges to exclude four high court judges and two magistrates. That act is unconstitutional and not based on any form of law,'' Omari said. ''The are implications of this. As an institution of disciplinary processes, the four judges have a process for removal from office stipulated under Article 168,'' he added.
''The two magistrates lack security of tenure. Unlike the judges, they are most likely to be interdicted and then dismissed,'' he stated.
''Does the Judicial Service Commission have the power to revisit the names they already dealt with?'' He questioned. ''The JSC had cleared all the names, under which law does President Uhuru have to send back the names?'' He went on.
''We are consulting to know what legal action will be taken to defend those exempted. The president can not cherry-pick and choose on who to appoint and who not to appoint.'' He concluded.
