“Magistrates and judges have liberty to invoke legal avenues available to enforce orders,” read the statement in part.

“The recent disregard of court orders is an act that is not only inimical to the rule of law but also completely at odds with Kenyans’ constitutional rights.”

He further indicated that compliance with court orders is not an option for any individual or institution since all state officers took an oath of office to protect and uphold the constitution.
