Tough Times Ahead For Uhuru as Another Group Moves to Court to Sue Him

Three days after the controversial swearing in of 34 judges at State House Nairobi, pressure continues to mount on President Uhuru to appoint the remaining six he rejected.

Speaking on Tuesday, a lawyer representing Judges and Magistrates Association said the movement is now mulling over plans to sue the President over the same.

According to the Lawyer Danstan Omari, he is now waiting for the green light from the organization before taking Uhuru to court.

"My clients have never been given any reasons for their rejections. It is not right and justifiable for Uhuru to deter the appointments of these judges," stated Omari.

"We reiterate that the President had no reasons known in the law nor constitution to deny appointment of those judges. Those judges have done tremendous works," added the lawyer

Lawyer Omari added that the six rejected judges risks public reticule as the president is yet to publicize any individual problems he has with the judges.

This comes at a time Nakuru based medic Gikenyi has already petition the High Court to block the JSC from assigning jobs to the newly gazetted 34 judges until the matter is heard and determined.
