I don’t have powers to stop Raila’s Swearing in – CJ Maraga

Chief Justice David Maraga has finally broken his silence on the ongoing feud over the swearing-in of NASA leader Raila Odinga as People’s President later this month at Uhuru Park grounds.

Responding to a letter circulating on both mainstream and social media,CJ Maraga began by disowning the letter (purportedly from his office) which was warning judges against presiding over Raila Odinga’s presidential oath.

Speaking during the induction of parliamentary legal committee in Mombasa,the President of the Supreme Court also stated that he has no powers to sanction judges from swearing-in any Kenyan.

“My roles are clearly stipulated in the constitution. I am not aware of such a letter from my office. I do not have powers to sanction judges from swearing-in any Kenyan,” he said.

Here is what he (Maraga) later retweeted;

Constitutional amendments on electoral laws of 2017 allows any judge to preside over swearing-in of a president-elect as declared by the elections board.

This comes as the NASA Opposition maintains that the oath-taking ceremony will still go on at the already cordoned Uhuru Park grounds.
