Updates: President Uhuru Kenyatta Sends a Message to CJ Martha Koome Slamming Some Judges

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told off the Kenyan Judiciary for using excess powers to try and shield themselves from the rot that is within them.

While delivering a message to the Chief Justice Martha Koome on Thursday through the Attorney General, the president lamented that the Kenyan people did not expect what is happening at the judiciary.

“Madam CJ, this is not what the people of Kenya signed up for as they voted in their millions for our new Constitution,” Uhuru said.

He has told off the judiciary noting that the Kenyan people are watching and one day one time, they will rise against the judicial authoritarian that is currently happening within the third arm of the government.

“In recent times, madam CJ public discourse has been awash with allegations of partisan comprised decisions of judicial officers that are not keeping up with the expectation of our sacred covenant,” Uhuru said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta directed the message to the judiciary days after it emerged that one of the judges of the High Court had been incriminated in corruption related cases at his court.

The same judge had been arrested by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation but a judge of the High Court barred him together with his counterpart from being re-arrested.
