A Congolese tweep has brought out the difference between Kenya’s Supreme Court and the one in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In two juxtaposed photos, the user highlighted the main feature in the two courtrooms.

In Kenya, the coat of arms, that symbolizes protection and unity, is smack right in the front of the Supreme Court where the judges sit.

In Congo, on the other end, their Supreme Court is dominated by a portrait of President Joseph Kabila.

Twitter users weighed in on the possible explanations as to why the two courts are different with some saying Congo’s is answerable to the executive or president while Kenya’s judiciary is independent.
