Dozens of supporters of Kenya’s ruling party have demonstrated outside the Supreme Court demanding the removal of judges who nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in August.
Last month the court said a new poll must be held after ruling that the August 7 vote was mired in irregularities.
The court’s chairman David Maraga, said the demonstrations were“clearly intended to intimidate the judiciary.”
“While recognizing the rights of citizens and seeing them as a pillar of the Constitution, these demonstrations are close to the brink of violence. There is a clear intention to intimidate the judiciary and individual judges. “
