What you need to know:

  • While plans for such a transmission are afoot, there is anxiety in the Judiciary that the CJ’s action could be misinterpreted in the current polarised political climate in the country.
  • There are also questions as to whether President Kenyatta will act on the recommendation, given his past relationship with Mr Maraga and the judiciary.
  • According to Mr Kitonga, there is a likelihood that if the CJ’s recommendation comes to pass it will be challenged in court.

Chief Justice David Maraga could be preparing for possibly his last major act before he retires early next year, with an imminent recommendation to President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve parliament for its failure to enact a law on gender balance.
