#ConfusedMaraga: Earlier today, CJ Maraga attacked president Uhuru Kenyatta after he failed to appoint 41 new judges recommended by the judiciary.
The CJ noted that according to the constitution, the president had no more powers other than approve the names. Addressing members of the press, angry Maraga confirmed that the Attorney General had given the president a maximum of 14 days to approve the names as directed.
Kenyans took to social media to condemn Maraga’s acts on a hashtag #ConfusedMaraga that as since gone viral.
Here are some comments from the hashtag

He answers to the President, that is why every year he is obligated to invite the president and in public submit a report card. But does the power drunk Maraga know? #ConfusedMaraga

Who started this hashtag #ConfusedMaraga ? Indeed Uhuru is determined to rule this country by the iron fist! Raila is repeating the mistake he did in 2002, when he lied to SIMION NYACHAE , that he was to announce and support his presidential ambition. Kibaki & his swindlers..
