Online Reactions After Popular CAS Suggests That Judges Should Be Elected By Citizens Through Ballot

Picture for illustrative purpose.

As wild as you may think this is by Zack Kinuthia that we should consider electing JUDGES at the ballot, I'm a willing participant of this line of thought. Especially judges of Court of Appeal and supreme court. Why can't we subject them to the will of the people at the ballot? Picture for illustrative purpose.

This bold tweet attracted lots of reactions where different Kenyans gave different views and opinions as captured below.Picture for illustrative purpose.

*Then they will start making judgements based on people other than making them based on constitution. If judges made a ruling basing on the people they would not have cancelled the 2017 election. Justice is blind and uncomfortable if not on your side, respect the judgement.

*So that they will make their decisions based on an eye for election? Imagine a judge who makes unpopular, but fair decisions? Remember about judge Odunga in 2017? My friend let judges focus on delivery of justice rather than worry about their election issues
