Former Prime Mister Raila Odinga is seemingly not in the same mind with Siaya Governor James Orengo after the ODM party leader today gave his stance on Ruto's decision to appoint the six judges who were rejected by Uhuru Kenyatta back in 2019.
Raila's view on President William Ruto's first action after assuming the office comes three days after Siaya Governor James Orengo who is also a renowned law practitioner took to his Twitter account to make his feelings known after the six judges successfully took oath of office.
Orengo who tweeted publicly admitted that there was no justification at all to refuse to appoint the six judges by Uhuru, as he went ahead to congratulate them on their swearing in.
"There was no justification at all to frustrate the appointment of the judges of the Court of Appeal, some of the best judicial brains. Kudos to Muchelule, Korir, Ngugi, Makori, Omange and of course Odunga. He and Ngugi are not just good judges, but also great scholars," said Orengo on his official Twitter account.
And while addressing Members of Parliament who were elected under the Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Alliance coalition, Raila chooses to criticize the decision by Ruto to quicken the appointment of the judges and allocate lump sum to the Judiciary.
RAILA Odinga: "There is clearly a push by the executive to own the judiciary through illegal actions that amount to bribery. That is the reason for the rush to appoint six judges and allocate money to the Judiciary."
