Justice David Njagi Marete cuts a mien of a neighbour next door. His doppelganger includes one of our foremost Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta as well as LSK chair. LSK here can mean anything including Literary Society of Kenya.
His protruding cheek bones, a fringe of grey white hair concentrated on his signature goatee, the dark hairline atop his scalp with two furrows that signified wisdom buried deep in jest. I was awe struck by his sanguine resilience. Him, muffled inside a black suit, a white shirt and a checked blue tie.
Justice Marete looked like a deity, with a joke after another flowing from his head like millions of miniature rats escaping from the effeminate bag he carried.
He employed more of Literature jests, offered the commissioners more of comic relief than the serious candidate they looked for. While I would say, he was forthright in many of the answers he gave, he never showed a veneer of sophistication of a potential Chief Justice.
