Former CJ David Maraga was on KTN today to discuss the recent Judges appointment saga and here we have picked the key points from his interview and hereunder are some key points
President Uhuru should appoint the six judges he rejected and take the matter of their suitability to the Judicial Service Commission for determination.
These judges have been condemned unheard, in the eyes of the public, these are the corrupt judges the President was talking about. – Maraga
The list of 34 judges appointed by president Uhuru Kenyatta was altered~Former CJ David Maraga
Uhuru Kenyatta is violating the constitution. That is why he is being faulted.~Maraga
Former CJ David Maraga is saying things our flower girl CJ should have said.
If the President and IEBC followed the law the Courts couldn’t have nullified the elections – CJ Maraga
“We may never have a Judiciary if Pres. UHURU KENYATTA continues to undermine it’s function” ~ Ex-CJ David Maraga
Former CJ David Maraga says he agrees with the contents of Willy Mutunga’s letter to president Kenyatta on failure to appoint the 6 judges .
With all the court orders issued, the President is adamant and saying that he will not take the easy way. The constitution has not given the intelligence the power to appoint judges, the views of the intelligence have their place.
“I am sorry to say that I will always remember President Uhuru Kenyatta as a President who had no regard for the rule of Law.” Former CJ David Maraga
If we leave the President to continue doing things the way he is doing and see it as normal, it will create problems in Kenya- Maraga
Former CJ David Maraga: I wanted Kenyans to know why I was not able to deliver the way I was supposed to. I wanted them to know when my hands were tied.
The Kriegler report recommended that there should be a fully constituted electoral body two years to election. However, it’s only now that they decide to appoint the commissioners despite the handshake happening 3 years ago.
Quite a number of people accused me of not talking to other arms of government, do you go to talk to people who don’t want to talk to you? – CJ Maraga
Former CJ David Maraga: I requested the President to call the speakers and myself so that we can see how to deal with administrative matters on the interdependence of the 3 arms of government, the President refused. What was I expected to do?
Former CJ Maraga: We have lynched in public six judges. And if this goes on, their reputation will be in ruins. This disturbs my conscience.
Former CJ Maraga: the silence of the opposition is what is giving the president the audacity to do what he is doing.
Former CJ Maraga: If the opposition were honest on the handshake, they would tell the president, yes we’re in these handshake together but what you’re doing now is not right.
David Maraga– “If we continue on this path, what we saw in 2007 Post Election, was a child’s play!”
