Boinett Makes Major Security Changes after Maraga’s Statement

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett has made major security changes...

The Chief Justice, speaking on behalf of the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), complained that the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett had on several occasions ignored calls by judicial officers seeking heightened security.

“JSC notes with dismay that the Inspector-General of Police, who is expected to provide security to all government facilities, has repeatedly ignored calls to act, exposing judicial officers, property and litigants to danger,” the CJ remarked.

While the National Police Service denied Maraga’s claims, there was a major security improvement on Wednesday as police barricaded roads near the Supreme Court buildings.

There was a notable police presence on Wednesday, far from the chaotic situation on Tuesday that had been characterized by street demonstrations from Jubilee supporters who complained over alleged bribery of Supreme Court judges.

Boinett indicated that the deployment of police officers was meant to ensure no road closures by protesters. He further cautioned social media users against causing panic.

The apex court is on Tuesday morning (10am) expected to issue the full judgement on their decision that nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s August 8 election win.
