Martha Karua has hinted out that Jubilee government is allegedly planning to withdraw security team of the five judges who pulled down the Building Bridge Initiative (BBI) Report which according to them, they found it null and void a move that angered President Uhuru Kenyatta and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Leader Raila Odinga.
On Tuesday, May 18, 2021 Jubilee`s icon Raphael Tuju indirectly dared the judges, asserting that whenever giving a judgement on such a serious matter they should always consider that the state is the one that will provide security to them, adding that, he was disappointed in the ruling.
According to Tuju, the Court`s judgement on the BBI was personal and political, adding that they should be educated on what being interdependence is all about, because as soon as finishing such, they need heavy security to escort them.
Tuju`s response, has spurred mixed reactions from Kenyans and a section of political figures who have alleged that the safety of the five judges is not guaranteed and that, the respective bodies should take a center stage in ensuring they are safe.
“Judges should learn the word ‘independence’ because as soon as they finish a ruling, they need policemen to escort them home,” he said.
On her end, Karua noted that the issue should not be ignored, hinting out that Jubilee`s government veiled threat to the Judiciary should not be ignore but it’s an alert on the safety of Kenyans.
“This is a veiled threat to the judges and @DCI_Kenya @IG_NPS @ODPP_KE ought to be on alert & @JubileePartyK should clarify whether this veiled threat is the official party position,” Karua posed.
