A number of Kenyans have shown dissatisfaction with the courts and expressed their anger after another court order nullifies a presidential appointment that was done by Hon Uhuru Kenyatta in 2018. The president appointed 128 heads of parastatals in 2018 and the High Court has declared that the appointment was unconstutional. This move has aroused a mixture of reactions from Kenyans, with many asking whether the court is going too far or is still within the law.
This announcement is coming few days after the Nairobi High Court annulled the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) that was initiated by president Uhuru Kenyatta and former prime minister Raila Odinga. Questions have been raised whether the court is in direct attack on the president or whether the president does not follow the law in his appointments.
The legal advise committee of president Uhuru Kenyatta is now under siege following these series of annulments, with many asking if the president is correctly advised on legal matters.
The High Court of Meru is also on record for overturning the decision of the Senate of impeaching Wajir governor Mohammed Mohamoud. These series of annulments are raising serious questions about the law and how it is being applied in Kenya.
