Ameanza; Chief Justice Martha Koome Throws First Jab As She Assumes Office

Her statement is interpreted by many as a warning to the current president who has for long been accused of disobeying court orders in the past. She takes over from Maraga at a time when the courts are facing backlogs of cases in the courts with many cases going unattended.

During her oath-taking at the statehouse, president Uhuru wished them the very best as they take over the courts for the next four years. He further revealed that his government is ready to support them in their capacity as government as they undertake their obligation. Do you think Martha Koome will bring the must needed change and discipline to the judiciary? React below.
