LSK President Shows Dissatisfaction in the Appointment of Martha Koome as CJ

President Uhuru Kenyatta has formerly issued a gazette notice for the appointing of Justice Martha Koome as the new Chief Justice. This has followed the intense interviews from the Judicial Service Commission and the national Assembly.The Law Society of Kenya President, Nelson Havi had tweeted in relation to this matter that 'The National Assembly will today, approve the appointment of Chief Justice but has not, for the last three years, questioned President Uhuru Kenyatta’s refusal to swear-in 40 Judges. Three good years! Everyone, name your MP and tell him/her “....you are a shame to Kenya.”

He received immense support from people who had it in their view that if only those with the president's ear could share with him the tribulations of litigants, ordinary Kenyans to who justice remains elusive given that judges are overwhelmed by caseload.. Then perhaps, just perhaps he would honor this constitutional duty and appoint the judges.

However, others said that Uhuru refusing to swear in 40 judges some of whom are corrupt is a good thing.

Will the battle between the new CJ and LSK president ever end?
