Kenyans are yet to come to terms to yesterday Feb 20thâ€™s revelation by the Chief Justice that Judicial officers have been threatened by Mungiki and that a new trend of intimidation has been devised by top bureaucrats to intimidate and frustrate the judiciary a head of the general elections.
Of interest is the content of the poison-pen addressed to the Chief Justice that promises direct body harm to the Judges, Chief Justice and the diplomatic community were the courts to rule against Uhuru Kenyatta’s candidature in the March 4th general election.
Three months ago, Assistant Minister and Mukurwini Member of ParliamentÂ Kabando wa Kabando voiced similar threats to the judges saying as Africans they ought to know better â€œnot to offer any adversarial ruling against Uhuruâ€™s eligibility case as Kenya will be ungovernableâ€
Whether there are links between the authors of the poison-pen and Kabandoâ€™s threats may not be clear but the ideology embraced by both is definitely similar.
The threats confirm the fear of many Kenyans that impunity is here to stay, and that for hardcore Uhuru Kenyatta supporters, the March 4th election is a must win by all means necessary.
Here is how it was reported by KTN.
