City Bishop Margaret Wanjiru Pens 9 Heartfelt Keys to Martha Koome Hours After Her Swearing In

Jesus is Alive Ministries (JIAM) preacher Bishop Margaret Wanjiru has delivered powerful message to Kenya's first female Chief Justice Martha Koome hours after her swearing in at the Supreme Court of Kenya.

Koome has today been sworn in to succeed former CJ David Kenani Maraga who ended his term as the President of the Supreme Court few months ago.

As the newly inaugurated CJ prepares to kick off her assignment to the people of Kenya, the City preacher has congratulated her while urging her to strictly stick to Constituitional call throughout her judicial journey.

Bishop Margaret Wanjiru to CJ Martha Koome: Congratulations the the 1st female Chief Justice in Kenya, Hon Martha Koome. We are greatly elated by her appointment; indeed it is a big milestone and affirmation of the leadership that women in this country can provide.

In her message to Hon Martha Koome via post, Bishop Wanjiru has asked her to do everything possible to exercise her role in a just manner, rebuke those who oppress Kenyans, and defend them without any partiality.

" I request the new CJ to be guided by these scriptures in her lone of duty:

(Isaiah 1:17). Learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the poor and fatherless, plead for the widow' AND [ Leviticus 19:15]. Do not pervert justice; don not show partially to the poor or favouritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly," the City preacher delivered to CJ Koome.
