Mutunga's decision has been triggered by the arrest of David Ndii
Mutunga has expressed his interest in chairing a commission of Inquiry into police violations under the auspices of the Office of Former CJ.
Through his Twitter handle, Mutunga stated that it was painful listening to David Ndii’ wife narrate the frustrations they had gone through in the hands of police.
“Hearing Mrs Ndii narrate her pain and her quest for rights reminds me of the trauma my family went through in 1982-3. I can feel the pain of this family. I would really love to chair a Commission of Inquiry into these police violations under the auspices of the Off of Former CJ.” Tweeted Willy Mutunga.
He added that Police have been violating Article 238 of the Constitution, by tarnishing justice system. He pointed out that the government should value Dr. Ndii’s critiques and his rights must be protected. And the rights of his family, too.
“The police are blatantly violating Article 238 of the Constitution. They are tarnishing our justice system. The government should value Dr. Ndii’s critiques. He openly exercises his rights. His rights must be protected. And the rights of his family, too.” reads Mutunga's tweet
David Ndii’s wife, stated that her husband is not a criminal and the arrest was unnecessary.
Ndii’s wife (Mwende Gatabaki) disclosed that she was in Diaspora until 2014 when the President asked her to come in the country to champion for the presidential digital transformation of Government.
"I have a message for the President. Uhuru Kenyatta sent a special request to the president of the African Development bank requesting for me to come and champion the presidential digital transformation of Government, his project, which he started because of the attack on Westgate.
According to Ndii's wife, she was supposed to create a database for Kenyatta's government which would have the data for all Kenyans and assist in tackling security challenges was well as creating transparency in the country.
