A woman carrying stacks of files and wailing uncontrollably at the Milimani Law Courts, while claiming that Chief Justice David Maraga has refused responsibility of his child, if real, shows how low our society has become.
In normal circumstances, you would expect such to be brought about by people of no means, but when they involve people of high esteem in society, and to make the matter even worse the custodian of laws, we should rethink where we have gone wrong as a society.
You may see the incident as a small one, but if the same happened in America, or Britain, it would result to immediate resignation by such high level people in society but as usual being a Kenyan affair, money will be exchanged to silence the woman, and if not careful, also get harassed by the system.
The issue has come in the open and we therefore urge the Chief Justice, to clear his name by convening an urgent press conference similar to the one he had recently held addressing President Uhuru Kenyatta. He should also be ready to take a DNA test to clear his name as giving flimsy reasons of politics and authenticity of documents is not convincing.
It’s the right thing to do, so that justice to the young girl, can seen to be done and the shameful matter, immediately settled out of court or through mediation to avoid more spending on lawyers by the poor girl.
