Chief Justice David Maraga led judiciary has been dealt a massive blow after President Uhuru Kenyatta administration decided to freeze the bank accounts of its key financier on Thursday.
In a letter dated October 5th and addressed to the financier-International Development Law Organisation (IDLO)-the Government ordered the immediate suspension of their operations in Kenya.
The IDLO has been funding the Kenyan judiciary for the past eight years.The Supreme court’s decision to annul President Kenyatta’s win of August 8th election, political pundits argue, might have been the reason behind the unprecedented decision by Uhuru administration.
The Prof. Makau Mutua,one of the most fierce critics of Uhuru’s administration,shared the letter on his social media handles.
Prof Mutua serves at the organization as chairperson’s Board of advisor.
In the letter addressed to the IDLO boss Irene Khan , Mr Fazul Mohammed, chairman of the NGO Coordination Board, issued an order to the immediate closure of their Nairobi offices.
According to Mr Fazul, the funds IDLO has been receiving finances for charitable activities but have instead been deployed to other operations.
This comes after President Uhuru promised to ‘fix’ the judiciary after revoking his Presidential win
“We shall revisit this thing. We clearly have a problem,” Uhuru said, referring to the judiciary.
The head of state also compared CJ Maraga’s decision as a ‘political coup’ attempt that did not succeed.
During the issuing of full judgement by the Supreme court,CJ Maraga vowed to nullify the upcoming poll (slated for October 26th) if the IEBC repeats the same illegalities and irregularities that bungled the August 8th election.
