In his plea and while responding to acting Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu, he stated the law he advocates should be changed in the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court.
Among the list that includes:
Determining presidential election disputes, hearing appeals from the court of appeal, other courts and the tribunal as well as to give advisory opinion.
He responded to claims that the current jurisprudence from the Supreme court is contradictory and unnecessary, stating firmly that the allegations are just perceptions.
