Suspicion Raised Over Allegations of Plan To Rig In A CJ

Temperatures are already high in the country as many Kenyans await to hear their new Chief Justice. They are still missing their former retired CJ David Maraga because of his good leadership. A leadership that the country needed from the Judiciary. Maraga was a man of his own kind as he stood for what is right and was never influence by bribes or anything whatsoever.

Until now, 8 candidates have been fully grilled by the Judicial Service Commission. The ninth one is taking the hot seat today while the last one will be interviewed tomorrow. Those first 8 include; Juma Chitembwe, Patricia Mbote, Martha Koome, David Marete, Philip Murgor, Nduma Nderi, Fred Ngatia and Ouko William Okello.

Although the interviews were conducted in a free and fair manner, there have been many claims since the start of the process that there are some injustices in store. Philip Murgor raised eyebrows after stating that he doesn' t want acting CJ Philomena Mwilu to be among the JSC panel. Other claims have been stating that Fred Ngatia is a deep state candidate who may be rigged in and as we are speaking, another serious allegation has come from DP William Ruto's ally Samson Cherargei.

While speaking to Citizen TV, Samson Cherargei claimed that Kenyans know who will be the next CJ. He went on to name Professor Olive Mugenda is a chair who is there to ensure that a certain candidate end up winning. For that reason, Senate Cherargei feels like the whole exercise is a futile exercise.

"Kenyans know who will be CJ, the serious candidates were interviewed this week. This a futile exercise as the CJ is known. Prof. Olive Mugenda is chairing for a certain candidate to win; They should be careful of ethnic composition." Said Samson Cherargei.

What do you think, are you with Senator Cherargei or you think the whole process is free and fair? Share your opinion below.
