Days after President Uhuru Kenyatta rejected the names of 6 Judges recommended for promotion citing integrity issues, it has now emerged two Judges among the rejected 6 were late inclusions in the list.

According to a report in the Nation newspaper, President Uhuru Kenyatta had altered the earlier list of 6 Judges he had rejected.

Kenyatta reportedly added Judge Joel Ngugi and George Odunga in the list late. The two Judges were not appearing on the initial list presented to JSC indicating the rejected Judges.

It's important to note, Joel Ngugi and George Odunga were among the 5 High court Judges that rejected BBI, declaring it unconstitutional, null and void.

Over the weekend, ODM leader Raila Odinga joined other high profile individuals in expressing his opinion in the current standoff between the executive and the Judiciary.

Mr Odinga called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to make public the integrity issues he is concerned with in relation to the 6 rejected Judges.
