Mutunga keeps referendum secrets to himself

15 September 2014, 19:01 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Judiciary will not take sides on calls for or against a referendum, Chief Justice Willy Mutunga has said.

The Chief Justice said in Nairobi Monday that the Judiciary's role was to educate Kenyans and take an advisory view on the matter.

Speaking after meeting CORD's Okoa Kenya referendum management team, Mutunga said the Judiciary was aware of cases pending in court over the planned referendum and was working hard to ensure all are dealt with in the right manner.

" This meeting should not look to mean that as the Judiciary we support the referendum, he said.

" We will offer an advisory role on the process if called upon to, like we have done in other important national matters in the past," he added.

Leader of the Okoa Kenya team lawyer Paul Mwangi, thanked the CJ for welcoming his team and giving them an audience.

" We thank the Chief Justice for granting us audience and speaking openly of the process we are undertaking, he said.
