High Court Judges Lives In Danger? Martha Karua Alerts Police After Tuju's Comments

The high court ruling on the building bridges initiative has continued to elicit mixed reactions amongst all Kenyans from the political divide.

Deputy President Dr William Ruto's camp celebrated the five bench judges for defending the rights of voiceless Kenyans.

President Uhuru Kenyatta's team through the attorney general has moved to court to appeal against the ruling made on BBI.

NTV journalist Smriti Vidyarthi held an interview with Raphael Tuju to get his perspective concerning the ruling made against the BBI 

Jubilee SG Raphael Tuju termed BBI ruling as not just a legal matter but also about getting political settlements. 

He accused the High Court of judicial activism, adding that such rulings risk tearing the country apart. 

Raphael Tuju said, "Judges should learn the word 'interdependence' because as soon as they finish a ruling, they need policemen to escort them home."

Martha Karua warned that Tuju's remarks are a threat to the Judge's lives as she urged the inspector general of the police and the office of public prosecution to be alert.

"This is a veiled threat to the judges and @DCI_Kenya @IG_NPS @ODPP_KE ought to be on the alert & @JubileePartyK should clarify whether this veiled threat is the official party position," Martha Karua remarked.
