A Supreme Court judge and a complainant are in talks over an alleged altercation incident.
Yesterday, Justice Mohamed Ibrahim met with Gigiri DCIO Joseph Muguna -- for the second time -- for talks that lasted an hour in a follow-up to a Thursday night meeting.
“They are waiting for the complainant to formally write to the police and withdraw the complaint. The meeting was cordial,” said a source, who indicated that yesterday’s meeting was at Gigiri Police Station.
On Thursday night, the judge informally talked to the policeand a security manager, Ronald Nyoro, who claimed the judge threatened him in an altercation he says almost turned violent.
Judge Ibrahim had driven to the station, and met Gigiri OCPD Richard Muguai and the OCS.
Sources said there were efforts to have the complaint withdrawn.
“He even spoke with the father of the complainant and he apologised to him over what had happened. The complainantsaid he will withdraw the matter,” said an official aware of the case.
According to sources, Nyoro later withdrew the complaint. Muguai refused to comment on the issue yesterday. JudgeIbrahim told the officers he was not armed and has never owned a gun. His phone was off for the better part of yesterday.
The matter comes at a time when judges are facing many accusations from various parties.
