"Stop Wasting Time On Interviews Since The Next CJ Is Known." Ledama Says

After the official retirement of Justice David Kenani Maraga on 20th January 2021 as Kenya's Chief Justice, there is currently a serious exercise going on in the search of a new Chief Justice. Maraga retired at his 70 years old in accordance with the Kenya Constitution.

Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu has been acting in the capacity of the Chief Justice since the office is very sensitive hence can't be left a vacuum. A handful of lawyers have been already shortlisted for the race. The interview began on 12th April with Juma Said Chitembwe. His competitors are Prof Patricia Mbote, Justice Martha Koome, Justice Marete Njagi, Philip Murgor, Justice Nduma Nderi, Fred Ngatia, Justice William Ouko, Dr Wekesa Moni and Alice Yano.

However, the Narok Senator Ledama Olekina has issued his prematurely prediction of who will make it as the next CJ. According to him, the current ongoing interviews are only for formality purpose, otherwise the 'deep state' already has the Chief Justice.

The Jubilee controversial senator says that Justice Fred Ngatia will be 'made' the new CJ. He advice's him to make the nice suits ready to pick up his awaiting new job.

Following his post on twitter account, many Kenyans reacted by sending their comments.

Do you believe what the Senator is saying as true? Why?
