What you need to know:

  • Given what we know about this Executive, Koome’s optimism about forging a cordial, collaborative relationship of mutual consideration and big-happy-family is painfully naïve.
  • This executive is uninterested in the economies of forging or sustaining working relationships with institutions. 

The unstated upshot of my argument last week was that Hon. Martha Koome’s posture affirms the executive thesis that effectively, the Chief Justice’s job description is a facsimile of that hideous innovation of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI): the judiciary ombudsman.
