    This Kenyan Chief Justice lost all credibility he ever had. He joined the judiciary with overwhelming goodwill from the Kenyan people. He then took that goodwill, trashed it and tossed it out the window. Sadly that ain't coming back any time soon. Ordinary citizens in Kenya will never receive any justice in his court.

    The Thief Justice should enjoy the perks that come with that office. These include riding around in stretch limousines, shopping sprees in London, diplomatic passports, bodyguards, entertainment allowances and so on. All matters relating to justice we gave up on these a long time ago.
