Supreme Court Judge Lenaola named jurist of the year

Published

on

Supreme Court Judge Isaac Lenaola has been awarded the Jurist of the Year.

In the awarding, the 52-year-old judge was described with words such as ‘calm’, ‘fair’, and ‘wise.’

While getting the award, Justice Lenaola said it’s time Kenyans take individual responsibility in the fight against corruption.

He also weighed in on the never-ending budget conflict between the Judiciary and the Executive.  The judge said, the courts need to be provided with the essential tools to fully carry out their mandate in the fight against graft.

“It’s time we took the fight against graft seriously, and we must give Judiciary tools to fight it as a country,” said Justice Lenaola.

He expressed gratitude to his friends, colleagues in the profession as well as his wife, for their support.

“This lady has been my pillar and my rock for the last 21 years. She has suffered my absence many times while I am away on duty.”

Last year’s award was awarded to High Court judge George Odunga.

The award was presented to Justice Lenaola by the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ Kenya) “for consistently, fearlessly and impartially espousing values and ideals that have immensely contributed to the promotion and protection of human rights, the rule of law, justice and democracy in Kenya and the Africa region.”

 Wakavinye has supported her husband since their early days, even before all the fame. Njugush feels lucky to have her as a wife. 

The two have sustained same longtime friends and Celestine shares the little secret for that.

She says;

“I have learnt that in life, you need to learn at most five close friends.

 By doing this, be sure that the first three will help you when you are in need.”

She further adds having too many friends also drains you financially

“Imagine all those friends have birthdays and they need you to show up, yaani every time you are planning of how to spend unlike when you have a small circle.”

 

And there is also societal pressure to have many friends;

“Ata kama umesota, it is hard to communicate that to a big number of people because some will gossip about you and most of them show up when you have a party, but when you are in a problem, you will not have them around,” she said.

She also insists on being yourself, don’t compete

“When you compete with your friends, you will get exhausted. So go with your pace.”

Some of the couple’s long-time close friends include; Abel Mutua and his wife Judy Nyawira, Philip and his wife Cate Actress.
