    • mzee,

      It is great to have Mohamed Ibrahim back at the Supreme Court. We have giant issues coming up and he has a record of a person with conscience and a commitment to social justice. I know Baraza’s position is also coming up soon. I saw the names of the 17 applicants. Hopefully we get someone there leaning towards justice for all Kenyans and not someone scared of shaking the status quo. The SC court ruling on gender representation was a disgrace which set the women’s political struggles in Kenya back big time. They didn’t throw it all out but kicked the can down to 2015. That is another story.

      Nambuye got lucky but Kibaki’s political hatchet woman Abida Ali Aroni who was appointed to the judiciary after helping Kibaki wreck the Bomas process where she was a commissioner is out in the cold. Let her go run for a political office. The erratic Mr.Apondi is also out. Good. Judges are coming next and it may be a blood bath. Wannachi have data on those people.


      • Agreed,

        With little setbacks here and there, we are still making positive strides pole pole. I frankly like the overall forward trajectory. Out Abida Aroni! Out Muga Apondi!…positive direction. In Mohamed Ibrahim! – positive direction.

        Let’s all remember we have a role to play. Let’s not keep (withhold) any information we know about crooked judicial officers only to blame ourselves later. It’s time to dialogue with the Vetting Board! I have been doing my tour of duty in this regards and so far, the effort looks worth it.

        I agree again – the Deputy CJ position is crucial. Vigilance and thorough scrutiny is needed now that we have seen the hidden hand of the establishment – plotting to plant their agent underneath Mutunga. Let’s get to work folks!


      • adongo, we are trying to get away from the culture of rewarding failures with political posts. on second thoughts, she may be a good replacement for abdikadir who like eugene has curiously opted ‘not to run for any elective’ post. what have these people been promised :)?
        anyway phandom, that is my choice for you seeing that nobody wants to be your running mate.


  1. The reason given for dropping Mary Ang’awa is clearly the flimsiest I have seen. Seems like the lawyers want to be treated with kids gloves
