We need a Judiciary that will stick to the rule of the law and it is going to be independent .When we talk of Independence it’s not only from other arms of the Government but independence from individuals maybe the public , an advocate or even other judges. A case should be decided on its own merit.”

Waigwa’s sentiments have been echoed by her counterparts in the legal field among them lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi.

Kenya Film Classification Board Ezekiel Mutua also welcomed the nomination saying it was a proof that God cares about Kenya, “and rules over the affairs of men.”

“The activists with twisted minds who were being touted for the position, yet they neither honour God, have no family values nor do they respect the institutions of leadership, would have aided the moral decay in Kenya and set a bad example for our youth.”

Mutua pointed out that, “Kenya is a nation founded in the fundamental belief in “The Almighty God of all creation. . .” as per the preamble of our Constitution. We respect our culture, honour our leaders and recognise family as the basic unit of society. These are the values that define us. Our crusade on the restoration of moral values has found another champion.”

Opposition leaders Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka also welcomed his nomination, urging him to ensure justice is delivered to all Kenyans, when appointed as the Chief Justice.

Governor James Ongwae of Kisii and his Nyamira counterpart John Nyagarama hailed the Judicial Service Commission for nominating the judge.

Other leaders who praised the appointment include Nyamira County Assembly Speaker Joash Nyamoko, Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi and lawyer Julius Migosi.
