The Judges and Magistrates Vetting Board has exposed the rot that most Kenyans would rather have under wraps. The decision to fire top judges who have been acting as gate keeepers of corrupt regimes and owners of Kenya should act as a sounding board that it is not business as usual. Times and Kenya have changed ahead of her citizens. The lack of bigots pointing fingers at Sharad Rao and his team is a clear testimony of the wider objectivity and acceptability of the execution of their mandate.
Previous acts of impunity are speedily catching up with their perveyors. No other institution is best placed to lead by example and from infront than the Judiciary. This is a profession steeped deep in tradition baggaged with heavy Englich language with no commensurate actions. Clinging on seniority while offering no ground-breaking progressive judments amounts to nothing but taking pride is a catalogue of previous mistakes packaging the as experience.
The Rao team had their eyes singularly trained on the forest and refused to be distracted by the thorny trees. The Goldenberg scam will remain a blot on the conscience of our leaders for years to come and by pinning both Nyamu and Bosire on the same was an indictment of their colleective and personal incopetence and judicial insensitivity. One is left shuddering if Riaga Omollo were to succeed in becoming the Chief Justice last year.
Whoever branded lawyers as legal scoundrels had massive brain wave of a genius. That our Judiciary lack philosophical depth need no gainsaying. Forget Nyamu's elementary attempt at poetry while protecting the corrupt. The Vetting Board has reawakened the hitherto lost national renewal of 2002. Those who butchered our national pride as the happiest people in the whole world must be ashamed of their brutal acts.
But all is not lost, we have an opportunity to engineer the change we want. If only we could seize the moment and walk the talk. But can we? Only time will tell. Over to you dear Kenyans.
