Top Lawyers Say Koome Must Appoint Six Judges as Per Court Ruling

According to lawyers, Martha Koome has no alternative option rather to appoint the six judges as ruled by the High Court. It's clear unless the issue moved to a higher court, the Chief Justice will have no option rather to deal president Uhuru Kenyatta a blow and appoint the said judges to the court of appeal.

There has been speculations that Martha Koome might not appoint the judges but the fact of the matter is that the law requires her to move with speed and appoint the judges in 14 days. It's clear you cannot go against the court which has forced her to go against Uhuru decision to refuse to appoint the judges.

One interesting thing is that Uhuru Kenyatta refused to appoint the six judges who are unfortunately serving currently. It's therefore pointless to refuse to appoint them when they are still serving in other higher capacities as such brings some lack of confidence among the people.

However time will tell of what will unfold as we move forward for clearly we live in interesting times. Whether Koome will appoint the judges within 14 days as ordered and conflict with Uhuru Kenyatta, only time will tell. It's a ruling she must comply with whether she liked it or not.
