Kenyans on Twitter on Friday heaped praises at Chief Justice David Maraga for what they termed as “heroism.”
Kenyans online termed his act of nullifying the presidential election as “courageous.”
They stated that he had restored the country’s hope and trust in the judiciary by acknowledging that the electoral process had irregularities.
Some online users termed his staunch Seventh Day Adventist as a “blessing to the independence of the judiciary.”
Here are some of the tweets on Maraga’s ‘heroism’:
