According to Today’s People Daily Newspaper, the head of state President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed not to swear in the remaining six judges of the court of an appeal despite mounting pressure from civil groups and chief justice Martha Koome for them to take an oath. He says that his conscience couldn’t allow him to bear in mind past rulings that were made by some of the judges.

Uhuru who pointed out some of the key reasons why he revoked their appointment which included the handling of drugs related cases and terror cases indicated that after wide consultation he reached the decision not to appoint the said judges who were optimistic that the head of state would appoint them to the court of appeal.
Martha Koome over the weekend sent a detailed letter to the president demanding the immediate swearing of the remaining judges after presiding over the sweraing of the thirty-four judges appointed by the head of state a few days ago in statehouse.
