“Sibanduki Ng'oo" CJ Koome Sets Records Straight, Vows To Stay Put In The Election Committee

Chief Justice Martha Koome has faulted United Democratic Alliance (UDA), for asking her to resign from the Technical Working Committee for Election Preparedness. Speaking in Makueni today during the Annual Devolution Conference in Makueni County she said

“I met an intergovernmental committee on election preparedness and I was attacked for holding the meeting. Let’s understand that the Judiciary cannot deliver justice on its own,” she said adding that after the attacks she wonders what will happen if she meets any politician.

The top judge said her role in the election preparedness committee does not, in any way, affect justice dispensation, especially on matters of elections.

This comes after Deputy President William Ruto's party wrote a letter addressed to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairperson Wafula Chebukati questioning Koome's role in the committee terming her presence that will create conflict of interest since the CJ is constitutionally required to act as an arbiter in election disputes.
