"Are Sensing Defeat" Gladys Wanga Tells Off DP Ruto's Allies Over Their Criticism Of The Judiciary

Details have emerged revealing that the Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga has defended the involvement of Chief Justice Martha Koome and the Judiciary in the 2022 election planning affairs.

Gladys Wanga has also dismissed Deputy President William Ruto allies’ demands that Koome stick to her constitutional mandate and not be part of the committee as it presents a conflict of interest.

As reported by the source, Wanga was speaking to Citizen TV on Thursday, the woman representative said Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance is sensing defeat and has started making sideshows. According to her the deputy president's allies are sensing defeat and that is why they are sending their critics to the Judiciary.

“When you see you are going to lose you start hanging onto things… UDA are sensing defeat, because this is a very straightforward matter,” said Wanga.

She went ahead to state that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is the one that is responsible for conducting election.

“You are planning an election, IEBC is the one responsible for conducting that election, which is a multi-stakeholder process. If you leave the Judiciary out of the election then you expect to take your petitions to court, to a Judiciary that is unprepared.”

Gladys Wanga went ahead to condemned the DP Ruto’s camp over what she termed as gimmicks to reduce the public’s confidence in the Judiciary.

“I'm sure they understand just how important it is to have a Judiciary that is not just credible, but also seen to be credible. So if you muddy the perception of the Judiciary, you want to take this country into war… you truly do not have the interest of this country at heart,” stated Wanga.
