“Obey court orders and rule of law. It’s not you alone who wants a good legacy, CJ, elected leaders, civil servants, hustlers all want good legacy.

“Don’t make everything to be about yourself,” he wrote.

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Monday told President Uhuru Kenyatta to obey the rule of law and adhere to court orders.

Through a tweet, Murkomen echoed CJ David Maraga’s sentiments that the President should lead by example.

“Mr.President, legacy is the sum total of what you do every day, not a coat you pick and wear end of term.

“Obey court orders and rule of law. It’s not you alone who wants a good legacy, CJ, elected leaders, civil servants, hustlers all want good legacy.

“Don’t make everything to be about yourself,” he wrote.

Further, Murkomen pointed an accusing finger at the Head of State, saying he is trying to control everything around him.

“The 2010 Constitution did not anticipate that one man can be the President, Deputy President, CIC, Independent Commissions, DPP, IG, DCI, Chief Justice, Judge, Magistrate, Speaker Senate and NA, MP, Governor, Governor Nairobi and Kiambu, media owner, editor for all media houses all in one.”

Chief Justice David Maraga on Monday made his frustrations known to the media through a presser that had some hard-hitting words directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Maraga blamed the President for disregarding court orders, terming it a recipe for anarchy.

“The refusal of the President to appoint the 41 judges, was a grave violation of the constitution

“The President's disregard of court orders, doesn't board well for our constitutional democracy & is potentially a recipe for anarchy; the Executive routinely disregards court orders,” he said.

In his address, the CJ also voiced frustrations at how he has sought audience with President Kenyatta but to no avail.

He challenged the Head of State to uphold the Constitution and be an example by obeying the law.

“How can we expect God to bless our nation, when we're so callous to the most desperate in our society?

“I have for a long time now unsuccessfully sought an appointment to discuss this issue with you, leaving me no choice but to raise the matter through this public statement; you swore to defend & uphold the constitution & the laws of Kenya,” said Maraga.
