President Uhuru Kenyatta reiterated to the controversial rulling by the Supreme Court that declared the elections null and void by promising to allegedly revisit the justice department.

Towards the end of his tenure, the former Chief Justice David Maraga lamented of frustration by the Executive, from lacking of proper funding to the disregard of court orders.

At the interview, Raphael Tuju purpoted that the judiciary should learn more on interdependence. He added that the judges upon delivering a judgement would require the services of the police who are indeed under the command of the head of the executive, President Uhuru Kenyatta to escort them to their respective homes.
