James Orengo Comments on Ruto's Move of Appointing The 6 Judges

President William Ruto appointed six judges to the Court of Appeal who were rejected by his predecessor.

Makueni Governor Mutula Kilonzo Junior previously indicated that Attorney General Kihara Kariuki should be held accountable for his role in former President Uhuru Kenyatta's refusal to appoint six judges.

Another Azimio Ally has praised President Ruto's wise decision to appoint six judges.

Siaya Governor James Orengo took to Twitter to criticize President Uhuru Kenyatta for failing to appoint six judges nominated by the Judicial Service Commission in 2019.

The lead attorney, in a statement released shortly after the judges were sworn in on Wednesday, said there was no excuse for the former president's failure to make the appointment to call on some of the brightest minds in the judiciary. Kudos to Muchelule, Korir, Ngugi, Makori & Omange. And Maraga was there to see it all. An independent judiciary is paramount,” Orengo wrote.

The 6 judges appointed by President Ruto were among 40 others nominated by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) in 2019.
