The Judiciary and the Executive, two significant arms of government are seemingly at an intensified supremacy war since the nullification of presidential election in 2017 by the Supreme Court of Kenya led by the former Chief Justice, David Maraga.
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.
Moreover on Monday night of 17th May 2021 in an interview at Nation Television (NTV), Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju has allegedly insinuated that the Executive will further "revisit" the judiciary. This is coming after the controversial court ruling that seemingly brought the BBI constitutional amendment bill to a halt.
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.
Is the Executive planning to further revisit the judiciary?.
