All is set for Uhuru,Maraga meeting today

BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,6TH SEPT 2018-Stage is set   for  a do or die meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and  Chief Justice David Maraga who are expected to meet today (Thursday 6 September)   in what is seen as a perfect opportunity for the two to deliberate on the differences that have been witnesses between the judiciary and the executive.

Several issues have in the past been seen as a source of  conflict  between the two   most powerful arm of government with each side blaming the other.

One of the most hottest issue will be the move by the treasury  to drastically cut  Judiciary’s spending for the 2018/2019 financial year  which was reduced to  Sh17.3 billion before Parliament slashed it further to Sh14.5 billion, leaving only Sh50 million for development.

The chief justice David Maraga has complained bitterly about the move as well as other stakeholders who considered the decision as done in bad faith.

Apart from that other issues of conflict between the two will be deliberated at length.
