“Our Lives Are In Danger" The 5 Bench Judges Cry As Deep State Goes After Them

Kenya Magistrate and Judges Association in a statement dated Tuesday, May 18, revealed that the five judges, had been receiving threats since declaring BBI unconstitutional, null and void.

"KMJA is alarmed by the daily attacks directed at the individual judges who sat on that bench. Such attacks are an affront to the decisional independence of the Judges and the rule of law," read the letter in part.

"We call upon the Inspector General of Police to immediately investigate the said utterances with a view to prosecuting the culprits. We also urge the relevant officers of government to immediately engage the judiciary to ensure the security of all judges, magistrates and kadhis," they stated.

This comes after a bench of five judges Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Jairus Ngaah, Teresia Matheka and Chacha Mwita pulled a big surprise by declaring BBI unconstitutional.

Yesterday while talking to NTV, Jubilee Party Secretary, Raphael Tuju urged judges to learn to be interdependence because as soon as they finish the ruling, they need policemen to Escort them home as guards and driver's.
