Ahmednasir Tells CJ Koome What To Do Concerning The 6 Judge Appointment Stalemate

As the case of the appointment of the six judges left out by president Uhuru continues to take shape, pressure continues to mount on Chief Justice Martha Koome to act swiftly. Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdulahi, the chairman of the senior counsel's association of Kenya, has advised Koome on how to deal with the executive citing what former chief justice David Maraga did concerning the appointment of justice Mohammed Warsame to the Judicial Service Commission.

According to Ahmednasir, Koome has a legal precedent to follow in the matter of the six judges saying David Maraga swore justice Warsame to office when the government refused to gazette him as a representative of the Court of Appeal to the Judicial Service Commission.

Abdulahi's advise is coming at a time when High Court has ruled that president Uhuru Kenyatta's power to appoint the six rejected judges will elapse and they will automatically be appointed. Former chief justice Mutunga has also advised Koome to be a politician in solving the stalemate.
