Ichungwa Warns Martha Koome On This About The Current Regime As He Mentions Tuju Specifically

Kikuyu Constituency Member of Parliament Hon Kimani Ichungwa, has warned the incoming Chief Justice Martha Koome against the intimidations by the current Jubilee Government regime.

Speaking during the special parliment seating to debate on the approval of Lady Justice Martha Koome as the new Chief Justice, Ichungwa told Koome that she should not allow the judiciary to be intimidized by the government officials.

Ichungwa urges Koome to stand firm and defend the Judiciary against the threats from the current region, if they not rule in favour of them. He reminded her that the whole country will be setting up eyes on her to see whether she will stand for judicial independence.

The MP went ahead to mention the Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju, as the person who is leading in the government for intimidating the judicial officers. He therefore wants the incoming Chief Justice to make sure she doesn't allow such people to interfere with the Judicial independence.

"Lady Justice Martha Koome, I want to tell you this that you should be ready to stand firm and defend the judiciary, from intimidations and threats from the government officials. You should not fear and let people like Raphael Tuju to threaten the judicial officers and interfere with judicial independence. All Kenyans are looking up to you to ensure that you do the right thing and not being directed by anybody." He said.
