Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama has called on Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika to respect President Uhuru Kenyatta and decisions taken by the Jubilee administration.
Arama was referring to a tweet by Senator Kihika over the conflict between Judiciary and the Executive after President Uhuru Kenyatta dropped names of 6 Judges who had been nominated by JSC.
The tweet from Senator Kihika stated, “For @CJMarthaKoome & @jsckenya the rubber has met the road, all eyes on you! Will you enable impunity by allowing Uhuru who has no respect for the law to continue intimidating the judiciary and interfering with its independence or will you stand up to this bully? We are watching.”
However, Arama who spoke on Friday in his Constituency defended President Uhuru Kenyatta saying he should be respected as the head of State.
According to Arama, the decision to drop the names of the 6 judges was reached after several integrity concerns were raised against them.
“The President should be respected. I am surprised by a tweet from Senator Kihika after the President dropped some names of 6 Judges. As leaders we should give the president the respect he deserves as head of state” said Arama.
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday appointed 34 out 41 judges nominated by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) for appointment to superior courts.
The Head of State however declined the nomination of Justices Aggrey Muchelule, George Odunga, Weldon Korir and Prof Joel Ngugi who were to join the Court of Appeal.
Justices Msagha Mbogholi, Omondi Hellen Amollo, Mumbi Ngugi, Francis Tuiyott, Nyamweya Pauline Nyaboke, Jessie Lesiit and Laibuta Imaana are among the seven who were appointed to the Appeal Court in a gazette notice dated June 3.
