Kaluma Responds To Ngilu, Blames Women For Narrowing Their Chance To Get The First CJ

Kitui governor Hon. Charity Ngilu had earlier this week appealed to the Judicial service commission to consider appointing the first woman chief justice, Ngilu, in a memo titled "It's time for a woman chief justice", argued that all the arms of government are currently occupied by males, she suggested that it is this time when the recruitment of Chief Justice is ongoing that a woman should be placed to head atleast an arm of the government.

Ngilu argued that women constitute more than 50% of the Kenyan population, however, they have been ignored in negotiations, this she felt was being unfair to the women.

The interviews to get Maraga's replacement is ongoing, three women are eying the seat, Prof Kameri Mbote, Hon Lady Justice Martha Koome, and Ms Yani Alice, however, it will not be easy for these women to beat the able men, the likes of Fred Ngatia and Wiliam Ouko.

However, according to the ODM Vocal MP, Kaluma, this appeal by Ngilu will not bear fruit, Kaluma Said that women lost the chance to produce the first chief justice the day Mwilu withheld her Application, he added that these same women did not fight for their own when she was beaten to submission for no wrong done, instead they cheered.

"Women cheered as Philomena Mwilu, DCJ. was beaten to submission for no wrong commited. Women lost the chance to produce the first Chief Justice the day Mwilu, DCJ withheld her application!"
