It was an historic judgement after the 5 Judges of the High Court of Kenya nullified the BBI Amendment Bill. These five judges are Joel Ngugi, Jairus Ngaah, Teresia Matheka, George Odunga and Chacha Mwita. Many politicians and especially those allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga were displeased by the ruling as they thought of action against them.
Since the ruling was made, the Kenya Magistrate and Judges Association (KMJA) has revealed that the 5 judges have been receiving threats, frustrations and attacks. KNJA therefore calls upon the Inspector General of Police, Hillary Mutyambai to immediately investigate the matter and prosecute the culprits. They also want the Ministry of Interior to assure the citizens that the Judges are safe and given enough security.
The KNJA has however assured Kenyans that they could not be shaken by these threats as they promise to dispense their mandate given to them well. Judiciary and the Government have however not be in line since the era of Justice David Maraga who nullified the 2017 general elections.
