Enforce Constitution or resign, CJ tells Kenya leaders By OLIVER MATHENGE in Nairobi | Monday, December 5 2011 at 11:46
State officers must enforce the Constitution fully or honourably resign, Chief Justice Willy Mutunga told the Kofi Annan meeting on Kenya progress Monday.
Speaking when he gave a key note address at the two-day meeting, Dr Mutunga said complying with Kenya's new Constitution was not an option, however unpalatable some officers may find its provisions.
"Any public or state official who finds certain clauses administratively inconvenient, must be reminded that vacation of office is a honourable option if one no longer feels capable of honouring his or her oath of office to protect, defend and uphold the Constitution," he said.
