Parliamentarians associated with the Azimio party have objected to Chief Justice Martha Koome being given time to address new members of parliament as part of her inauguration ceremony.
Jared Okelo, a lawmaker for the Nyando party, told the media on Monday, September 19, that the coalition party had no patience with CJ Koome since she had failed to uphold the Kenyan constitution.
“We are dissatisfied that Parliament has invited the Chief Justice to come and make a presentation. The judgment that she rendered was full of insults and I do not think we deserved them.
“She does not interpret the law as it ought to be. We will respectfully walk away when she shows up to make that presentation,” he stated.
Wilberforce Oundo, a member of parliament for Funyula, criticized the Supreme Court judges’ conduct in their judgment on a contentious election. Oundo urged Koome to concentrate with her office.
“We expect judges and people in the judiciary to be of good manner and temper so that whatever judgement they render is not full of innuendos. When she comes, or at whatever venue, has the time to redeem the image o the judiciary that respects the people of Kenya,” he stated.
