While debating the nomination of Lady Justice Martha Koome for the CJ's position in the National assembly, Mp Millie Odhiambo made claims of an impending plot being schemed to be executed immediately Koome assumes office as CJ.
According to Millie, There is an elaborate scheme to oust current DCJ Philomena Mwilu from her position, on the count that the Judiciary cannot be led by two women at the same time. The lawmaker cautioned against such a move, warning of untold consequences.
"I am aware that some people want to remove the other Lady (Philomena) remaining at the Judiciary on the count that two women can't hold powerful positions at the Judiciary. Many men hold big positions and no one removes them. The Lady (Mwilu) should not be removed." Odhiambo said firmly.
The National assembly has approved Martha Koome's nomination for the CJ position, and now she waits the formal appointment by President Uhuru Kenyatta as the country's Chief Justice.
