Kalonzo threatens demonstrations over plans to oust CJ Martha Koome

Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka threatens nationwide demonstrations over a proposal to oust Chief Justice (CJ) Martha Koome. 

Speaking on Sunday at a church service in Muthara, Tigania East, Meru County, Kalonzo claimed to be aware of a court petition requesting Koome’s removal, calling it a direct assault on the judiciary.

“We will protest from Maua, Seikuru, Meru, and all the way. We will not allow that, you cannot do that. That is the last bastion of our freedom,” said Kalonzo.

Kalonzo argued that the legislature has already been compromised and asked lawmakers who are still in the opposition to challenge any plan that appears to go against Kenyans’ wishes.

Michael Kojo Otieno filed the petition to remove Koome, arguing that the CJ had broken the law when selecting the tax appeal tribunal’s members.

Kojo contends that the CJ lacked diligence and transparency, and that she discriminated against those who had applied to join the board.

“While appointing persons to serve at the tax appeal tribunal, the judge failed to be honest in the execution of powers conferred to her by the Tax Appeal Tribunal Act based on powers conferred to the judge as a judicial officer…,” reads the petition in part.

“The actions of the chief justice in appointing members more than the stipulated requirement violated section 4b of the Tax Appeal Tribunal Act.”
