The Kenya Social Congress (KSC) party leadership has called on Jubilee Party’s Raphael Tuju to stop what it terms as “intimidation of the Judiciary.”

This follows a letter that the Jubilee Secretary General wrote to Chief Justice David Maraga alleging that the judiciary was biased in its rulings during the electioneering period.

KSC chairman, Atati Kengere, has said that the letter is wrong timed and could be having ill motives going by President Kenyatta’s utterances after the Supreme Court ruling in which he was quoted saying that they would “fix” the Judiciary after the repeat of the presidential election.

Mr. Kengere said that what the country needs at the moment is reconciliation and healing and any action that could jeopardize that process should be condemned.

“I condemn Tuju’s letter in the strongest terms possible. They should have learned that this country is looking forward to reconciliation. We should not be dragged back to where we came from,”said Kengere.

“My Lord, with all due respect, may I state the following, not to provoke you but to submit that no powers can be absolute… Irresponsible actions from the Judiciary, Executive or Parliament can burn this country – and with due respect you almost succeeded in burning the country after August 8th Elections,” wrote Tuju in the protest letter.
