  1. Iam a small shareholder of CMC and Egad companies. And Iam unhappy with our courts.
    As much as CJ Mutunga advises we should appeal when we dont like judgements and interim court orders he should take steps to see to it that Ceasars wife is beyond reproach.
    How does a stay of ‘status quo’ remain ‘status quo’ if the Board of a company is changed after a judge issues orders? And how can orders in the case of Tatu City issued based on a forgery remain in force even when the existence of the forgery is confirmed and unchallenged?
