UREPORT | By Vincent Kejitan | June 12th 2020
Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi on Friday hit out at theJubilee government following a smear campaign against Chief Justice DavidMaraga.
This is after some defamatory banners aimed at the CJ wereput up at various points in the city.
Ahmednasir insisted that the Judiciary is an equal arm ofgovernment, appearing to point an accusing finger at the Jubileeadministration.
“My BELOVED JUBILEE govt at times is too "SMALLMINDED"...What is this cheap nonsense against the judiciary?
“Isn't the judiciary a co-equal arm of government?” heasked.
On Friday, the Judiciary asked the Inspector General ofPolice and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to investigatethose behind the banners saying they were in bad taste.
The banners, which read “COMING SOON…Who Maraga isprotecting” were seen at various places in Nairobi and the Judiciary hasstrongly condemned the act.
“The content of the banners intimated that this was thebeginning of a ‘vicious fight’ targeting CJ David Maraga in particular and theJudiciary in general.
“While the Judiciary does not know the people behind theseattacks, it is clear that the banners are a continuation of well-choreographedattacks on the Judiciary throughout this week, particularly on social media,”read the statement in part.
This comes just days after Maraga blamed President UhuruKenyatta for disregarding court orders, terming it a recipe for anarchy.
In his address, the CJ also voiced frustrations at how hehas sought audience with President Kenyatta but to no avail.
