Government officers continued attack of Judiciary will erode public confidence warns former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo.
Kabogo said the criticism of Judiciary is a threat to democracy and bound to open floodgates to cartels who want to brand judges as corrupt so to hamper service delivery.
His cautioned comes days after Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji and Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti accused judiciary of slowing down war on graft.
Haji and Kinoti blamed Judiciary of issuing conservatory orders that derail cases and allowing accused state officers to access their offices.
Kabogo said government officers’ attack of judges is sending signals on how they want future cases be decided.
“The judges must be allowed to do their work without interference. When government officers attack judges brazenly, they also attack and undermine our democracy” Kabogo said.
He urged citizen to protect and stand with the Judiciary as judicial independence is derived from the people.
“We have several instances of disrespect for the law of Kenya, Judges, and courts expressed by vulgar and insulting words or other incivilities by individuals or cartels with intent to frustrate the structures set by the constitution, “he said.
