Chief Justice Martha Koome has been working hard at the Judiciary since taking over from David Maraga, with an aim of seeing some reforms put in place. She is struggling to return the courts to the lost glory and finally gain the support of the public who are having opinion that the Judiciary is being controlled by the executive.
Well, with ambitions to protect the judiciary name, Martha Koome has sent a warning to two lawyers for allegedly trying to disrespect the courts by doing things casually. Lawyer Muchiri and another one identified as Ruto have gotten the message from chief justice who told them off after they requested her to rescue herself from the case, where Chris Okemo and Gichuru are facing money laundering charges.
Justice Martha Koome claimed that it was absurd for the lawyer to ask her to rescue herself from the case and yet they didn't file a formal request through the courts. She told them to be serious when it Comes to courts and something of such kind will it be allowed to Happen again next time. Well, the case was adjourned to a later date becouse senior Counsel Gitonye wasn't feeling well hence warranting the case to stop for a little longer.
