Nakuru - A member of Parliament is proposing the appointment of Catholic priests as Supreme Court judges as one way of dealing with corruption in the highest court.
Nakuru town east MP, David Gikaria said that priests are godly people who cannot be swayed by money when handling cases.
Speaking Monday in Nakuru town, Gikaria said that appointing new judges will not solve the corruption problem at the Judiciary because they too will be swallowed by the corruption monster.

"Dissolving the Supreme Court and appointing new judges will not help because even the new ones will be compromised," said Gikaria.
"Not unless we appoint priests to be Supreme Court judges, I don't see how we are going to finish corruption in the Judiciary," he added.
He said trusted and well known priests should be trusted and given the responsibility of resolving disputes that need the Supreme Court's intervention.
"At the moment, no Kenyan can be trusted to be clean except a few priests," he said.
