Maraga shames Uhuru officials who have been refusing to pick his phone calls
What do you want me to do? Maraga asks
Maraga particularly took issue with the Treasury, which is headed by CS henry Rotich, which he angrily accused of deliberately ignoring and undermining him.
He added that on several occasions, he had attempted to contact the National Treasury to resolve the budgetary mishap but his phone calls went unanswered.
“Here is where a CJ calls Treasury and no one is picking my calls. What else am I expected to do?” a visibly angered Maraga stated during an interview with NTV.
The Supreme Court boss also accused Treasury of actively sabotaging the Judiciary’s plan of getting autonomy by delaying the creation of the Judiciary Fund as well as the joint collaboration with the World Bank to improve the Judiciary’s capacity.
The Judiciary Fund would guarantee the Judiciary 2.5 per cent of the revenue collected in Kenya and would not need to plead with Treasury for release of funds.
Maraga dismissed the explanation that the World Bank programme was cut off in light of the huge debt facing the country.
“Parliament has borrowed money to build the senate and its offices, so what are you talking about?” he asked rhetorically.
