Law society of kenya president Nelson Havi disputes the idea of kamotho waiganjo that the president cannot appoint a chief justice who they have problems with. Nelson Havi challenges waiganjo that the president is not the one to appoint the supreme Court president instead the panel set for interview will nominate their best suited candidate to the president who will then endorse or reject but chances are he will endorse. The president cannot outlaw the decision from judicial service commission experts.
"Kirinyaga County First Gentleman Kamotho Waiganjo opines that the President of the Republic of Kenya should be the one appointing the Chief Justice. I doubt he would hold that opinion if the President was Agoi, Makau, Onyango or Kipkoech.", Nelson Havi said.
Waiganjo was quoted on the standard newspaper with the following claims.
"Is there any Kenyan out there who really believes that a President, in an infant democracy like ours, would appoint a [Chief Justice] they have problems with just because [she/he] has been approved by the JSC?"kamotho waiganjo said.
