Jubilee’s Raphael Tuju may lament threatening High Court Judges that halted Raila Odinga’s BBI reggae withdire consequences for her action.
The CS without a portfolio further blamed judges, Justices Teresia Matheka, Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Jairus Ngaah, and Chacha Mwita, of disregarding President Uhuru Kenyatta by alluding to him as “Mr”, and also limiting his powers as the president,who is a symbol of National unity.
“Judges should learn the word ‘interdependence’ because as soon as they finish a ruling, they need policemen to escort them home as guards or drivers.”
“ The world is much more complicated,” Tuju stated.
The Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi have led several layers and Kenyans in raising worries over Tuju’s comments.
“Raphael Tuju, hear and get me loud and clear.”
“Your behaviour seems to know no limit.”
“Judges volunteer to serve in an Arm of Government.”
“Their security is not a privilege but a right.”
“This is not the Uganda of the 1970s. Cross that line again and you will live to regret it,” Havi warned.
“Security to the judges is not a favour from the Executive but a right.”
“The police service is not the property of the state but of all Kenya citizens.”
“They must serve everybody without discrimination,” one J Kiprotich added.
Legal advisor Kamotho Waiganjo additionally cautioned Uhuru Kenyatta’s Government against fighting back over the BBI bill being discredited by the judges.
