Kipchumpa Murkomen had allegedly stated that Presidents Kenyatta time to leave the office was fast running out afer his appointment of the 34 judges and on Thursday May while rejecting the approval of the other six.

"His time is running out, i am more worried by the thought that all judicial appointments in the future will depend on the presidents wishes. Makes nonsence of Judicial indipendence under our constitution" Murkomen tweeted.

While defending his decision to vote for president Kenyatta Murkomen stated that the president never promised to break the law.

"I fully admit that i voted for president Kenyatta 4 times and thus helped him to be president. He never promised anywhere to break the law.
