Sports chief administrative secretary Zack Kinuthia is a man under siege after Kenyans turned against him for proposing that judges occupying the high court's, court of appeal and supreme Court should be subjected to competitive elections just like other political leaders for purposes of accountability.
In his controversial address that he made today in Nairobi, Kinuthia further said that judges terms in office should be limited unlike now where they serve until retirement at the age of seventy.
Kinuthia who was indirectly targeting the high court for rendering the building bridges constitutional bill null and void has since attracted a lot of criticism for his utterances.
Angered Kenyans were quick to remind the administrator that even his office is unconstitutional and therefore lacks the audacity to air such crude opinions.
In as much as many netizens distanced themselves from Kinuthia's proposals, reknown blogger Abraham Mutai took his opinion positively intimating that there are possibilities to subject the judges to the will of people.
Varied reactions from netizens were as follows:
James: the future of Kenya is firmly under the hands of stupid people.
Zuma: a few months and we won't even remember him. Akwende huko. What if the judges begin serving in the interest of a few tribes with majority vote.
Ken: no it's not! I am sure tides are shifting and their will be no place for such fools in the near future.
Barake: this is what happens when qualifications for office is based on how much noice one can make.
