Lawyer makes good his threat to have four judges sacked
Ruled in favourThe latest petition against some of the Supreme Court judges comes over a year after the JSC dismissed a couple others following the disputed 2017 presidential election. The letter highlighted allegations against undisclosed members of the Bench in the Wajir governor case. “Based on credible and actionable information from our clients, (we) have made serious allegations against part of the Bench that adjudicated over the matter,” the letter reads in part. Chief Justice David Maraga acknowledged receipt of the letter from Nchogu, Omwanza and Nyasimi Advocates company on the same day. “Given the grave allegations you have made, I have tabled it before the Judicial Service Commission for appropriate action,” the Chief Justice said. Last Wednesday, the former Wajir governor went back to the Supreme Court seeking to have the top court overturn its decision and to rule that Mr Abdi was not validly elected on August 8, 2017.
