Attempt to investigate Supreme Court registrar, Esther Nyaiyaki, to have her record a statement over claims of her doctoring the poll outcome report and statutory forms on the nullified presidential petitions has failed.

The judiciary department has turned away investigators who went to the Supreme Court. The judiciary said the investigators needed a court order to take statements from the registrar.

“There were about a dozen officers who came to us and we asked them to follow the right procedure,” the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary, Anne Amadi, said.

Chief Registrar of the Judiciary said when the investigators obtain the necessary document they will be accorded the necessary help they need.

Meanwhile law society of Kenya (LSK) has said the attempt to investigate the Supreme Court registrar, Esther Nyaiyaki is unconstitutional.

The law society of Kenya (LSK) has also for the second time condemned president Uhuru threats to the Supreme Court and asked him to respect the court decisions which are not in his favor.

LSK clarified that the president is entitled to expresses his desertification with the court.

“Declaring that they should wait for him after he is successful in the coming fresh elections are unfortunate and wholly inappropriate remarks from the head of state that under the Constitution is a symbol of national unity, enjoys immunity from criminal and civil proceedings and must promote and enhance the unity of the nation.” said the Law Society in a press statement.
