Judiciary committed to protecting media freedom: Maraga

Chief Justice David Maraga says the judiciary will not entertain any ambiguous laws passed by parliament. Maraga says laws should be specific and the court will not hesitate to strike out any piece of legislation that seems to undermine the spirit of constitution. Speaking at the Inaugural Press club hosted by The Kenya Editors Guild, the chief Justice promised that the courts will stand to uphold freedom of the media and that it will take extra caution of ensuring that freedom of expression, when exercised legitimately, is not met with generally worded penal provisions and sanctions.
