Lately, President Uhuru Kenyatta has been under sharp criticism from other arms of government over failure to appoint 6 Judges out of the 40 presented to him by three Judiciary Service Commission.
Even as the calls reach its peak, the Head of State has upheld he earlier decision; he will not appoint the Judges.
Speaking during a meeting with Ukambani leaders on Monday, June 14, Uhuru said that he run a background check on the judges but found them to be unfit.
In the meeting held at State House, Uhuru told Ukambani leaders that he had shared the questionable information on the judges with Raila Odinga and Former Chief Justice David Maraga.
After Chief Justice Martha Koome assumed office, Uhuru also shared his findings with her and the Judicial Service Commission.
According to President Uhuru, Maraga gave him a deaf ear when he was given the report. He demanded him to appoint the judges without hesitation.
Among the 6, is Justice George Odunga and Joel Ngugi who nullified the BBI report.
Uhuru openly told the leaders that he had a problem with their conduct while delivering the BBI rulling.
“You heard one of them describing me as Mr Uhuru. That’s showing disrespect to the authority, they went to the extent of bringing in matters that were not raised in the petition,” argued the Head of State.
His response comes amid numerous calls and ultimatums for Uhuru to appoint the remaining judges.
Chief Justice Martha Koome said that the Head of State must abide to the constitution and appoint the 6 judges.
Her predecessors David Maraga and Willy Mutunga also called on him to obey the constitution.
Maraga and Mutunga had sharp criticisms for Uhuru, who they accussed of deliberately sabotaging the constitution and constantly violating it.
Both of them dared Uhuru to resign or be impeached by Parliament.
