Respect the Judiciary, Bishop Korir tells Jubilee government
Eldoret Catholic Bishop Cornelius Korir has urged the Jubilee government to respect independent institutions of the country.
Korir warned that ‘messing up the institutions of the country’ was not good for the country especially at this time of the election.
“Messing up with independent institutions is not good for the country” warned Korir.
He urged the head of state and his deputy to appeal the High Court ruling in case they were not satisfied instead of castigating the Judiciary which is an independent organ of the government.
Similar sentiments have been echoed by the Law Society of Kenya and other lobby groups.
LSK president Isaac Okero in an earlier report said the attack was “deplorable and an attempt to compromise the independence of the Judiciary”.
During the Jubilee campaigns in Kabartonjo, Baringo County, on Sunday, the President, his deputy William Ruto and MPs faulted the courts over the recent ruling on the awarding of a ballot-printing tender to a Dubai-based company.
They criticised Chief Justice David Maraga over comments attributed to him on the case before it was heard by the court, claiming that he may have influenced the outcome.
