Though the nominee for the position of chief justice position failed to showcase his capacity in constitutional matters besides failing to answer questions asked by the members of parliament, he was categorical that he was not gay.
In response to Runyenjes MP Cecile Mbarire whether he was gay, DR Willy Mutunga was emphatic that he was not gay
He also also cleared the mist about his religion declaring that he was a man of all religions.
However, it was evident that the nominee is getting immense support from the civil society and could be headed for the chief justice post.
Dissenting views about integrity and long-term suitability
Dr Willy Mutunga has been associated with the gay community in Kenya a view sociologists, psychologists, and religious leaders point out as not suitable for the young people.
Arguably, Willy Mutunga should be a role model rather than a vice for the society.
In continuum, his failure to be complacent with specific religious faiths are a panacea for political-religious disconnect with the church being consistently being maligned and delineated from the flock.
The lawyer, Dr Mutunga has no judicial expediency, besides having no track record of administrating in the judiciary as a judge which disconnects him with actual judicial roles.
However, the nominee is headed for the position since parliament may be decided on his appointment besides the constitutional implementation process being behind schedule due to the CJ post
