KOT mumezidi! Chief Justice Martha Koome disables replies on Twitter account

Chief Justice Martha Koome has disabled replies on her Twitter account after Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) kept trolling her for her Supreme Court ruling.

Koome, who has been facing vicious cyberbullies since the ruling that upheld President William Ruto’s victory, censored her replies on the bird app.

Koome was reporting to her followers that her deputy Philomena Mwilu graced the close of the Environment and Land Court 10th Anniversary Conference that the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya also attended.

“The overall goals of the Conference were to create momentum to enhance land and environment governance and to build a more just and sustainable nation through strengthening courts to advance environment and land justice in Kenya.”

In the past, CJ Koome shared about her trip to Uganda in October, where she attended the 17th International Association of Women Judges Africa Region Conference, but she was met by references of “hot air” and “wild goose chase.”
These are words she used after she ruled that William Ruto was legitimately elected as the president of Kenya.

The first female Chief Justice would then defend the choice of words she used in delivering the judgement, saying they were not in any way seeking to offend anyone.

She stressed in a television interview the terms were used to express the finding of the evidence presented before the court.

“Those were English terms; they were not meant to offend anybody. It was just an expression of the finding of the evidence that was presented before the court.”

Further explaining that the evidence presented during the case was not solid, the CJ noted that the judge explained why they used all those English terms.
