James Orengo Aims A Dig At Uhuru After What He Did As He Reacts To Ruto's Appointment Of Judges

Siaya county governor Hon James Orengo has aimed a direct attack against former president Uhuru Kenyatta following his refusal to appoint six judicial officers forwarded to him by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) many months ago.

In a statement on social media, governor Orengo was categorical that there was no good reason for the former head of state to frustrate the appointment of the six judicial officers noting that the judicial officers were adequately qualified.

"There was no justification at all to frustrate the appointment of the judges of the Court of Appeal, some of the best judicial brains. Kudos to Aggrey Muchelule , Weldon Korir, Ngugi, Makori and Omange. And former CJ David Maraga was there to witness it all. An independent judiciary is paramount," he said.

Former president Uhuru Kenyatta had cited adverse reports from the intelligence agencies as the reason behind his refusal to appoint the judges. President William Ruto did what Uhuru refused to do yesterday by appointing all the six Judges into office yesterday.
