Uhuru caught red-handed in worrying “tribalism”

Uhuru's CS recently appointed an entire board from the Kikuyu community

President Uhuru Kenyatta has yet again been accused of tribalism in hiring government officials.

City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi pointed out the double standards in the quick gazettement of Macharia Njeru as a representative of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).

Njeru, who is from the same tribe as the President, was gazetted barely a week after his election – bypassing Justice David Majanja who was elected to represent High Court judges in the JSC back in February.

Abdullahi also pointed out the matter of Justice Mohamed Warsame who was elected to represent judges of the Court of Appeal in March 2018 but was sworn in in January 2019 – nine months later.

It took H.E UHURU a day to Gazette Macharia's election to the JSC. It took a court order and 9 months for Justice Mohamed Warsame to be appointed to the JSC...Kenya is an animal farm where the PIG from central Kenya is superior to the CAMEL from NFD”.

Justice David Majanja was elected to the JSC in February to represent judges and Magistrates. He hasn't been gazetted to date...in the Animal Farm called Kenya, the CHICKEN from Western is inferior to the PIG from Central Kenya,” the Senior Counsel said.

In the case of Warsame, the JSC was forced to intervene and ask President Kenyatta to gazette the Court of Appeal judge to the JSC.

The development came a few days after ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru, an appointive of the President, was accused of failing to reflect the face of Kenya.

In one of the most glaring cases of lack of diversity, Mucheru appointed five members of his community to serve in a national parastatal – the Postal Corporations of Kenya.
