Religious Leaders under the Dialogue Reference Group (DRG) held a breakfast meeting with the Chief Justice Martha Koome as Kenya moves closer to the Augusts General Elections.
Speaking during the session, CJ Koome reiterated the Judiciary’s commitment to support the electoral process by determining disputes that may arise in the upcoming elections according to the law.
“If you have issues with the Judiciary, raise them with us so that we can improve our services…this is what is called public participation,” she implored the religious leaders and all Kenyan.
In her remarks, Lady Justice Martha Koome further noted that leaders must weigh their words carefully as they can’t be taken back. She warned that if the youth are used, then they will go for those leaders who mobilise them and make them responsible for any lost property or lives.
“The Judiciary does not have a preferred candidate in any election, and it is very sad when a court has to nullify an election since it shows failure of the process.” She said.
The Inter-Faith Religious leaders have met with different electoral institutions to ensure that there is credible, free and peaceful General Elections before, during and after. They are committed to praying for the Kenya Judiciary and the entire country as we head to the General Elections.
