Angry Reactions as Uhuru's CAS Proposes Judges to be Elected Into Office by Kenyans After BBI Ruling

It seems that the country has not yet moved on completely after a tough ruling by the High Court few days ago where the building bridges initiative (BBI) process was trashed by the judges and declared unconstitutional. This is despite the efforts by president Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga to popularize it.

And now, one of President Uhuru's Chief adminstrative secretaries (CAS) has come out to make a proposal that has seemingly left many kenyans angered.

According to CAS Zack Kinuthia of the ministry of sports, it is time the country starts electing judges so that they are accountable to the people. He argues that it does not make sense for others arms of government like the executive and parliament to pass through an election while the Judiciary acts freely.

His remarks attracted angry reactions as can be seen below.

Robert: This man speaks faster than his brain works. He is full of bravado and rarely stops to think about what he is talking about. It's good he was moved from the education ministry apeleke mchezo sport.

John: A mad person may speak true words but he will add some utterance to it which will confirm his madness.....in other ways , little knowledge is very dangerous.

Seneta: Huyu jamaa ata kama alikuwa analenga classes pale UoN school of Law hakuna chenye alipata kwa hizo chache aliingia? Bure sana.
