- Kenya’s positivity rate down to 9.3% as 17 succumb
- President Uhuru sets on fire 5,144 illicit small arms
- Dr. David Njeng’ere appointed KNEC CEO effective July 1st
The Chief Justice noted the current rift between the Judiciary and Executive as she noted that some agencies and people are behind it. She however did not mention any names.
On top of her agenda is provision of adequate budget to fund some of the Judiciary activities and that more Judges need to be appointed especially at the Court of Appeal level.
The issue of funding has been mentioned before by CJ David Maraga who described it as the reason why the Judiciary was not accomplishing some of its mandate.
The former CJ lashed out at President Uhuru for failing to appoint the six judges saying that he will remember the President as one who disregarded the rule of law.
