Barely a few hours after Chief Justice H.E David Maraga advisory move to the President to dissolve the Parliament of Kenyatta, Tharaka Nithi Senator Prof. Kithure Kindiki has taken on his official Facebook page to support the move saying he is ready for a fresh election.
Kindiki notes that any move to go against Maraga advisory is illegal and unconstitutional hence asking other parliamentarians to be ready for elections.
However, Prof Kindiki, a renowned and respected international law scholar who has an equal grasp on constitution laws notes that today’s action may spur another debate and direction that is likely to affect the gains that Kenya has gained under the new Constitution of Kenya, 2010.
Kindiki noted that after the election may have legislators who may be against gender equality.
The move by Maraga to write to president has sparked alot of heat across the political divide with some politicians going on their accounts to post on their preparedness for another election if the Presidents heeds to CJ advisory.
This comes at a time when Kenya is under political heat and nightmare brought about by COVID-19 pandemic that has left many jobless and schools closed.
According to a lawyer who sought anonymity with NewsFlash 254, the Constitution does not give a timeline as to when the President may dissolve the Parliament upon receiving a nod and advisory from the Chief justice. He added that the president may decide not to dissolve the Parliament. This implies that the Parliament will be illegal hence referred to `lame Parliament.’
