Nairobi - Parliament and the Judiciary have been asked to stop fighting and instead focus on serving Kenyans.
Deputy President William Ruto said all leaders serving in the three arms of government have been elected by the people and therefore should serve them according to the Constitution, Daily Nation reports.
The wrangles between the two arms started when Judiciary Service Commissioners refused to appear before Parliament after suspending former Chief Registrar of Judiciary, Gladys Shollei.
Parliament’s Justice and Legal Affairs Committee also asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a team to probe six JSC commissioners accused of misconduct.
The commissioners are said to have breached the law by handling JSC’s Finance and Administration Committee affairs, instead of leaving it to be handled by the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary.
They commissioners are Ahmednasir Abdullahi, Samuel Kobia, Christine Mango, Mohammed Warsame, Emily Ominde, and Florence Mwangangi.
