Uhuru: Judiciary must style up

14 October 2014, 19:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has called on the Judiciary to stop frustrating government functions through the use of court injunctions.

The president says that by issuing court injunctions and interim orders ex parte, the judiciary was interfering with government movement.

He did say that despite the government and his statement not being meant to muzzle or interfere in the operations of the judiciary, he was insistent that there are ways that the Judiciary can ease operations for the other two arms of government, the legislature and executive.

" Issuance of interim orders and especially ex parte has undermined operations and thus goodwill and harmony between the three arms of government", he said in his statement during the opening of the East African Magistrates and Judges Association Conference at the Inter-Continental Hotel in Nairobi Tuesday.

He said that his comments were not meant to intimidate the Judiciary but rather ask them to operate in a way that is sensitive to the other arms of government.

" There are many concerns that have been raised by both the executive and legislature that I feel must be adressed well by the judiciary to ensure there is smooth operation at all levels", he added.

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga said that there was indeed need for efficiency in operation between the three arms of government and that the judiciary is doing its best to ultimately ensure that there is harmony for all.

" The judiciary is finding ways to ensure that it works in a manner that ensures that service delivery is improved and especially in this day of new challenges like terrorism and high levels of insecurity", he said.

The Senate especially has had problems with the Judiciary, with impeachment of officials at County level being frustrated by endless court orders and causing members to throw words at each other.

On its part, government has also seen several top officials not heed court orders, something the president said must be improved upon.
