Opinion: Kenyatta claims SCOK ruling is a ‘Judiciary’ Coup, I beg to differ!

The incumbent continues to be a bitter man, a very bitter man. Certainly, the hours of ruling didn’t help his mind or his spirit. Since the ruling was known on 1st September 2017, the explanation from the Supreme Court has not landed well with him. Uhuru Kenyatta is mad and his logic is bonkers. Therefore, I first shows his quotes and after that, briefly comment on it.

What happened is a judicial coup,” President Kenyatta said. “We have a constitution which has placed the interests of wananchi far above those of individuals; we have a constitution which has curtailed the powers of the Presidency, so that the will and wishes of the citizens would be respected,” said the President” (…) “In a democratic and free nation, where citizens’ rights are to be respected, we are now being told their will doesn’t matter; … wananchi who thought that the constitution guarantees their sovereign will are being told it doesn’t matter; it’s only few individuals who can decide for the 45 million people who their leaders can be,” said the President” (…) “As Kenyans, we have witnessed what has never happened in any democratic country in the world. We thought we were instilling democracy as a result  of our new constitution; we were entrenching devolution to ensure equity in the disbursement of national resources so that no Kenyan is left behind,” said the President” (Kenyatta, 2017).

Oxford dictionary explains a coup as a: “A sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government” (Oxford Dictionaries – ‘Coup’). To put into the judicial coup, would mean that the Judiciary took power away from government. The Supreme Court of Kenya never took anything away in their ruling, they followed the laws, the constitution and the electoral legislation that was not kept by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission. This is why the Supreme Court Justices could vote in favor of Kenyatta and the IEBC.

Therefore, this was not a coup, if the SCOK did a coup in Kenya, it would mean the CJ Maraga or any other ones voting on nullification of the Presidential Election of 8th August 2017, they didn’t take power themselves. The SCOK just put the check-in balances and justice for the ballots. The announcement of the results and verification of it. That is why the coup is nonsense, since the Court Justices didn’t take power, they just suspended the power of Kenyatta and stopped his second term. They just put the incumbent in a limbo. Something he certainly don’t like.

It is weird that he tries to defend the Constitution and talks of a few people’s individuals rights countering the value of 45 millions citizens. What is strange about this, is he saying that Kenyatta own value is higher, than the ones of the legal scholars who wants the elected people and representatives actually being elected by the 45 millions, not rigged in without evidence. Clearly, the President believes that the laws has lesser values because of the people, but the laws are made so the rules are the same for all citizens. That implicates that the IEBC has to make sure all citizens votes are counted and announced after the law. Something that apparently didn’t happen in the recent election. The reason for the mad attacks on the judiciary and not the IEBC. It impress me, the continuation from Kenyatta!

It wasn’t the Supreme Court that decided for the Kenyan people, neither did Jubilee, it was the rigging of the IEBC, that decided for the Kenyans. They made sure through their shady work and little evidence of following the Electoral Laws, was the reason for the judgment. Kenyatta, should respect it and not call it coup. Neither say the judges are a little group who acts against the people. They are safeguarding the people, because the ones who should feel tricked is the people. They went innocently to the polling stations and their incumbent President would easily have continued with a forged and rigged result. That is the will of the people, that they are listen to and not be cheated. It is a sad sight, that the President continue to pound on the people who are safeguarding the laws. The ones who respects and honors the laws, that is made in his August House, the National Assembly or the Parliament. Peace.
