As a member of Yash Pal Ghai’s critical Constitution of Kenya Review Commission, Ms Jepkoech kept leaving the Commission and running to Daniel Moi seeking anything the President didn’t like and which she could use to scuttle the review process.

When her colleagues “pointed her eyes” and she finally settled, they chose her chair of the Finance and Administration Committee. And that’s where she proved her wastefulness. She said each of them, 25 of them must be given huge Nissan Patrol vehicles Worth a total of 121 million, proposed a monthly salary for each Commissioner of 3.5 million a month (far mare than the salary of Moi she kept running to) and phones for the 25 of them worth 462,000 (at that time). She was almost overshooting the entire annual budget of the Commission.

She caught the mouth of the commission and Kenyans zero. Ghai protested.

A turncoat and wet blanket, she could sit with her colleagues, approve a report and later turn against them saying “Mimi sijui hiyo kitu” to please Daniel Moi. She even disowned the Bomas Draft Report which bore her own signature.

She made Yash Pal Ghai cry, asking, “which characters are these am made to work with?”

That “character” the darling candidate of FIDA and at 53 the youngest to appear before the JSC, seeks to be the Chief Justice of the Republic of Kenya and place her legs in the shoes of Chunilal Baghwandas Madan, QC, Fred Kwasi Apaloo, Willy Mutunga and the honourable David Kenani Maraga.

So in light of the above, tomorrow, the son of man will not be watching anything. No need to watch or listen to such a person.

It’s raining very well, so tomorrow, Inshallah, l will be planting as Okonkwo of Umuofia advised, that when it’s raining, a man must plant something.
