Karua Schools Havi After Stating That CJ Koome Must Swear in Judges If Uhuru Fails to Appoint Them

The President of the Law Society of Kenya Nelson Havi on Thursday stated that the ruling delivered by the High Court compelling President Uhuru Kenyatta to appoint the six judges he left out during June's promotion is a test towards the Chief Justice Martha Koome.

The High Court gave the president a duration of 14 days to appoint the judges, failure to which the Chief Justice will make the next step in swearing them as they would be considered formally appointed if the time frames lapses.

Havi claimed that CJ Koome can only pass the 'big test' if she wears them in on the 5th of November, 2021.

Reacting to Havi's remarks, former Justice Minister Martha Karua said that the CJ cannot make the decision until the court makes an order once the time frames given to the president ends without a suitable action.

"Unless the court do orders she has no mandate to swear them and you know it," said the Mount Kenya Unity Forum spokesperson.

Her comment comes after the Office of the President said it will be appealing the High Court's ruling.
