This week has been rough on our government, with the delivery of unfavourable court rulings on some of the actions taken by President William Ruto.
On Wednesday, the court extended the ban on the implementation of the punitive Finance Act 2023, meaning the government has to find alternative sources of the much-needed revenue until a final decision is made.
Then there was Monday’s declaration of the illegality of the CAS positions created for government allies, a move that was met with celebration from Kenyans who would have had to dig deeper into their pockets to sustain the flashy lifestyles of these officials.
Government insiders, however, were vexed by this decision, led by Senator Samson Cherargei who launched a scathing attack on the Judiciary for the decision.
The UDA bigwig went as far as reminding the Judiciary of the huge budgetary allocation handed to them by the President, evoking the question of whether it was meant to be a bribe.
Interestingly, 3 days later, no one in the senior government ranks has come out to chastise the Senator for his remarks, which probably means that this is the unfortunate stand of the entire administration.
Why dish out pain on Kenyans if you cannot take some of the pain yourself?
