Kenyan CJ Warns Executive Against Disobeying Court

Supreme Court

Kenyan Chief Justice David Maraga has warned the Executive against disobeying court orders.

In a statement, the CJ has termed the recent move by Inspector General Joseph Boinnet and DCI boss George Kinoti to defy orders to appear in court and also present lawyer Miguna Miguna as not only damaging, but also against the Constitution.

He says compliance with court orders is not optional, and has now told Judges and Magistrates they are at liberty to invoke the legal avenues available to enforce the orders.

Commissioner at the Commission on Administrative Justice Vincent Chahale says the acts of impunity might lead to lawlessness.

Meanwhile, the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights has asked iG Boinnet, Interior CS Fred Matiangi and office of the DPP to comply with constitutional standards of human rights and fundamental freedoms.

The Executive is also accused of failing to obey court orders to reinstate the security details of 141 NASA MPs, and also retain their guns until their case challenging the decision is heard and determined.
