The director of National museums of Kenya Dr. Mzalendo Kibunjia has exuded confidence that the newly appointed Chief Justice of Kenya Justice Martha Koome will deliver in her new pivotal position.
Mzalendo says he has no doubt that Koome will initiate dire reforms in the Judiciary that will see every party gets the justice they deserves from the independent body.
“I congratulate Justice Martha Koome for rising to her position. I am convinced that she is up and equivalent to the task and therefore will reform the judiciary so that Kenyans get justice especially on the hearing of the cases that have piled in our courts for years,’’ Mzalendo said.
He said delayance in hearing and determination of cases filled before courts has been hindering relevant parties from getting justice in Kenyan courts which has eroded Kenyans’ trust on judiciary.
Further, Mzalendo who has since declared his interests in Tharaka Nithi gubernatorial race in coming 2022 polls urged leaders from the county to unite together and lobby for development projects that will benefits Tharaka Nithi residents.
“I urge all the elected leaders in Tharaka Nithi to put aside their differences and unite to have bargaining voice to lobby for tangible development projects from the head of state before his term ends,’’ he added.
He attributed the leaders’ rivalry to the poor development in Tharaka Nithi County and therefore warned if the leaders fail to unite, the county may be left with white elephants projects that are of no help to the voters depending on the leaders for life changing projects.
Justice Martha Koome was appointed yesterday by the president to take up the position of Chief Justice of Kenya after her appointment was upheld by the national assembly.
Picking from the retired chief Justice David Maraga, Koome is now the first ever woman Chief Justice that Kenya has ever had.
All eyes are now on Koome to see how differently she will run the judiciary from past regimes where for instance violation of court orders by the executive arm of the government has been the order of the day.
