FIDA defends Justice Njoki Ndungu over criticism by Kenyans

The lawyers have come to the aid of Justice Ndungu following her court ruling.

Justice Ndungu together with Justice Jackton Ojwang dissented with the majority decision to quash the re-election of President Kenyatta.

She discounted key parts of the evidence that informed the decision of the majority opinion of the other four judges.

The judge faulted her colleagues for not using the certified forms filed in court by the IEBC to verify the allegations made by the petitioner, Nasa flag-bearer Raila Odinga.

Ndungu ruled that the majority opinion did not have the basis to overturn the election of President Kenyatta.

FIDA called on the government to take action saying asking them not to allow such kind of intimidation against women.

Chairperson Josephine Mong’are termed the ongoing criticism of Ndung’u on social media platforms as disrespectful.

“We find the photos (trolls) slanderous and dehumanising, and call for investigation and arrest of the culprit. The government should not allow such kind of intimidation against women leaders,” she said.

In her assessment, Mr Kenyatta was properly and validly elected as the president and the effect of the judgment was to deny Kenyans their right.
