Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has cast aspersions on the Judiciary’s decision to swear-in Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro.
Taking to his social media platforms on Thursday, January 30, Murkomen lamented that the oathing ceremony was not planned per the constitutional requirements. This was to replace county ousted boss, Ferdinand Waititu.
“A High Court judge cannot preside over swearing-in of DG of Kiambu to be a governor before 10 days are over and before they gazette the date, time and place for conducting the swearing-in ceremony.
“But you know what? Everything is working like a clock in the new Kenya. If the Judiciary is eager to do this then nobody can stop reggae,” he wrote about ODM leader Raila Odinga’s statements on the force of the BBI report.
Meanwhile, the much-awaited swearing-in of Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro as Kiambu County Governor on Thursday, January 30, was abruptly postponed in unclear circumstances with the judge set to officiate the event failing to show up.
In a report published by Citizen Digital, the Judiciary gave a statement that indicated that another date would be set for the event that followed the impeachment of Ferdinand Waititu by the Senate.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused,” read the Judiciary statement as quoted by Citizen Digital.
