  • 1 Dec 2021 in Senate: Good morning, Mr. Speaker, Sir. Do you hear me? view
  • 1 Dec 2021 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Sir. I take this opportunity to join my colleagues in welcoming Sen. (Dr.) Mwaura back to the Senate. He has gone through a horrendous experience in the last few months in the hands of his tormentors in our once beloved party; Jubilee. Mr. Speaker, Sir, I take this opportunity to thank you most profusely and your office for obeying the decision of the court and complying with the court order. The electronic version of the Senate Hansard Report is for information purposesonly. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor, Senate. view
  • 1 Dec 2021 in Senate: Thirdly, I am very proud of the Judiciary in this decision. For the record, I have always insisted that the Judiciary has a wide mandate to control the activities of Parliament, including issuing injunctions as happened in this case. However, I have been careful and I want to put it on record that expansive administrative aspects of parliamentary work, including quashing the gazette notice that had illegally been published to invite the former Sen. Leshore to take up Sen. Maura’s position. I still maintain that legal illogic that the Judiciary has expansive power to control the activities of Parliament in ... view
  • 11 Nov 2021 in Senate: Thank you, Madam Temporary Speaker. I cannot hide my tremendous admiration for the quality of this Report, which forms the basis of this Motion and at the leadership of Senior Counsel, Sen. Okong’o Omogeni, as well as the entire Committee on Justice, Legal Affairs and Human Rights of the Senate. view
  • 11 Nov 2021 in Senate: I was a delegate of the constitutional making process; the conference at the Bomas of Kenya in 2004 and 2005. It was a very lengthy process. At that time, I was representing the academia as a young legal scholar. I participated in the debates, especially the chapter on the Judiciary. Therefore, I want to completely associate myself with all the sentiments that have been made by the Mover and Seconder of the Motion, Senior Counsel Sen. James Orengo, whom I respect a lot. He has highlighted the historical context of the quagmire we find ourselves in today. view
  • 11 Nov 2021 in Senate: Madam Temporary Speaker, the recommendations of the Judicial Service Commission to the President are binding on the President. He has no room to manoeuvre or wriggle out of the names that have been given to him. The authority for that is in Article 166 of the Constitution. view
  • 11 Nov 2021 in Senate: Article 166 (b) says: view
  • 11 Nov 2021 in Senate: “The President shall appoint- view
  • 11 Nov 2021 in Senate: All other judges, in accordance with the recommendation of the Judicial Service Commission.” view
  • 11 Nov 2021 in Senate: Madam Temporary Speaker, it is not in accordance with the recommendations of the National Intelligence Service (NIS). The role of the President is appointive and ceremonial. It is not functional. The recruitment agency for Judges is the Judicial Service Commission. It pains me, therefore, as an officer of the Court, to see some of the brightest and greatest Judicial minds that this country has ever produced; My Lords, Justice Odunga, Justice (Prof) Ngugi, Justice Muchelule and Justice Korir, being dragged through a protracted name-soiling, simply because of a presidency and an Executive that thinks they can rampage around the country ... view
