He is a lawyer.They are judges.Of course they know each other very well considering how long they have worked together in that field and met one way or another.But we peaceful jubilee supporters believe in the power of the people not the court.That is why we are saying TANO TENA.

During such a critical case, a judge parks the informal friendship and avoids any hint of colluding with litigants. There is no way to justify the intensive contact and attempts at subterfuge (using borrowed phones and meeting in hospitals) as simple friendship, not when the fate of the Kenyan nation hung on the balance.

Before they arrive...

-Instead of NIS doing surveilance where it matters they follow Orengo everywhere
-Why didn't they release Msando's CCTV footage and just solve the crime
-They are just friends, even Orengo says so, it doesn't matter if they met during proceedings
-These Thieves stole the elections
-Orengo is a walking Constitution

....
Wacha diversionary tangents ndugu. You forgot to remind us of Philomena Wako's brilliance.

The Judiciary website is back on line (probably shorn off affidavits that contradict the final judgment). It i a fine moment to read the Judiciary's own code of conduct, before @kah tony feeds us his gut-feelings:

PART II—CODE OF CONDUCT FOR JUDGES

1. Independence

(1) Judicial independence is a constitutional requirement to the rule of law and a fundamental guarantee of a fair trial and a judge shall therefore uphold and exemplify independence in both individual and institutional capacities.

(2) A judge shall exercise the judicial authority independently on the basis of the judge’s assessment of the facts and in accordance with a conscientious understanding of the law, free of any extraneous influences, inducements, pressures, threats or interference, direct or indirect, from any quarter or for any reason.

(3) A judge shall not deviate from the law to appease public clamour, to avoid criticism, or to advance an illegitimate interest.

(4) A judge shall not be improperly influenced by

(a) the race, sex, pregnancy, marital status, health status, ethnic or social origin, colour, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, political association, culture, dress, language or place of birth of a victim of crime, witness, accused person, plaintiff or defendant;

(b) the judge’s personal feelings concerning a victim of crime, witness, accused person, plaintiff or defendant; or

(c) control, direction or pressure from any person or authority claiming to have an interest in a particular case.

(5) A judge shall be independent in relation to society in general and in relation to the particular parties to a dispute that the judge has to adjudicate and shall resist and reject any external influence, inducement, pressure, threat or interference, direct or indirect, from any quarter or for any reason, and shall have unfettered freedom to decide a case impartially, in accordance with his or her conscience and the application of the law to the facts.

(6) A judge shall not only be free from inappropriate connections with, and influence by, the executive and legislative branches of government, but must also appear to a reasonable observer to be free therefrom.

(7) In performing judicial duties, a judge shall be independent of judicial colleagues in Judicial Code of Conduct 4 respect of decisions that the judge is obliged to make independently.

(8) A judge shall encourage and uphold safeguards for the discharge of judicial duties in order to maintain and enhance the institutional and operational independence of the judiciary.

(9) A judge shall exhibit and promote high standards of judicial conduct in order to enhance public confidence in the judiciary, which is fundamental to the maintenance of judicial independence.

2. Impartiality

(1) Impartiality is essential to the proper discharge of the judicial office and a judge shall promote impartiality not only to the decision itself but also to the process by which the decision is made.

(2) Impartiality requires that a judge shall make decisions based on objective criteria, rather than on the basis of bias, prejudice or conferring the benefit to one person over another for improper reasons.

(3) A judge shall neither initiate nor consider ex parte communications on the merits, or procedures affecting the merits of a proceeding that is before, or could come before, the judge except as authorised by law.

(4) A judge shall, as far as is reasonable, conduct himself or herself as to minimize the occasions on which it will be necessary for the judge to be disqualified from hearing or deciding cases.

(5) A judge shall not knowingly, while a proceeding is before, or could come before, the judge, make any comment that might reasonably be expected to affect the outcome of such proceeding or impair the manifest fairness of the process, nor shall the judge make any comment in public or otherwise that might affect the fair trial of any person or issue.

(6) A judge shall disqualify himself or herself in any proceedings in which his or her impartiality might reasonably be questioned, that is to say if the judge—

(a) is a party to the proceedings;

(b) was or is a material witness in the matter in controversy;

(c) or a member of the judge’s family, has an economic interest in the outcome of the matter in controversy;

(d) has personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning the proceedings;

(e) has actual bias or prejudice concerning a party;

(f) has a personal interest in the outcome of the matter;

(g) had previously acted as counsel for a party; or

(h) any other sufficient reason.

(7) Every disqualification of a judicial officer shall be based on a specific reason, to be recorded in writing, including an explanation for the judicial officer’s recusal on personal reasons.

(8) Disqualification of a judge may be dispensed with if no other tribunal can be constituted to deal with the case or, because of urgent circumstances, failure to act could lead to a serious miscarriage of justice.

It's funny because in another thread, Lenaola has a case against Itumbi to retract his tweet and on the other hand Orengo admits to meeting him..
You move back and forth...

if this is true, then he won't be able to get away with a 'so what' atleast the judges wont get away with it. orengo is a thug and given the fellow thugs at law society, his license might survive this. it is against the judicial code of conduct and present a serious case of conflict of intererest . Already, mwitu's relationship with wako raises an ugly conflict. but why would he admit that they talked about the case? sure the cctv might have forced him to admit the meeting, or maybe there are audios?

This reply is very mature and emotions free. This, Sir, is the kind of argument that we should always have in this forum. Kudos.

Shika like mbili na ujilipie.
