The recent speech by Chief Justice David Maraga at Oxford University in United Kingdom has elicited mixed reactions from pundits.
Political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi, via his YouTube channel The 5th Estate, reckons that Maraga implied that for Kenya to move on well, parliament and executive should be dissolved.
"This week Maraga gave an address to a conference at Oxford. In this conference, he served notice without notice. He told us parliament and executive had failed Kenyans. As a political analyst, this is what I understood Maraga said. Parliament and Uhuru must go for Kenya to get rid of corruption and rise," Mutahi opined.
Furthermore, Professor Ngunyi said CJ Maraga actually insinuated President Uhuru Kenyatta operates an illegitimate government because he (Uhuru) is in that position as a result of rigged elections.
"In fact, Maraga implied that Uhuru is a product of a rigged election and as such he is illegitimate and he operates a bustard government and illegitimate government," Prof Mutahi added.
In his speech at Oxford University, Chief Justice David Maraga blamed parliament and executive for slow implementationI of the constitution, introducing the controversial gender bill in his argument.
The gender bill requires that composition of elective and appointive government positions should not be composed of more than two-thirds of a particular gender.
