Were you picked from a miraa farm in Meru? Miguna Miguna Shames CJ Martha Koome in midnight attack

Firebrand Kenyan born Canadian exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna took Chief Justice Martha Koome head on following her response to President Uhuru’s conduct on the appoinment of the 34 high court judges for promotion.


Koome yesterday oversaw the controversial swearing-in of the 34 judges at the Statehouse by President Uhuru, from the originally recommended 41 a thing that has caused disquiet in the judicial wing.


Taking to his official Twitter handle, the exiled barrister termed the CJ useless and incompetent wondering where she was picked from to head the judiciary.


“Martha Koome is so useless and incompetent one would think that she was taken right out of a Miraa Farm in Meru to the Hallowed Halls of the Supreme Court of Kenya. Her statement on Despot Uhuru Kenyatta’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACTIONS vindicates everyone who questioned her integrity.”Wrote Miguna Miguna.


President Kenyatta unconstitutional mutilated the list of the 41 originally proposed judges for promotion to the appellate court amid concerns of ethics and integrity from his intelligence.


The President defended his action stating that he will not turn a blind eye to reports from the state organs.


“As long as I serve as President, I will choose the right over the convenience, I will choose the hard over the easy and I am not doing this for myself but the people of Kenya,” Uhuru declared while reading his speech at State House, Nairobi.


Among the judges whose names were expunged from the list are the Justices Joel Ngugi and George Odunga who formed part of the five judge bench who recently threw away the BBI bill terming it null and void.


The other 4 judges who were rejected by Uhuru were – Weldon Korir, Aggrey Muchelule, Evans Kiago and Judith Omange.


After the swearing-in with attacks of cherry picking the 34 judges, Koome noted that she was not in office by the time the 41 names were being fronted to the President.

“We should find a lasting solution so that moving forward, this kind of delay and misunderstanding will be a thing of the past. Respect for the rule of law and the independence of the Judiciary is guaranteed under the Constitution.


No person or authority is allowed to direct the JSC or the Judiciary in the execution of their mandate,” Koome pointed out in her statement dated Friday, June 4, a few hours after she met Uhuru at State House.
