Police Protection Needed for Judiciary

Journalists For Justice / 20 September 2017

  Kenya’s chief justice, David Maraga, has asked the Kenyan police for protection for the judiciary because of the continuing protests and tension over a Supreme Court decision on September 20, 2017, which is expected to provide grounds for the nullification of the presidential election.

The following quote can be attributed to Otsieno Namwaya, Africa researcher at Human Rights Watch:

“The hostile rhetoric and escalating tensions in Kenya ahead of tomorrow’s final Supreme Court decision on nullifying the August presidential election are a source of grave concern. With demonstrations ongoing, the police should take immediate steps to prevent violence and urgently respond to the Chief Justice’s request to protect members of the judiciary.”
