Kenya's Chief Justice put on notice days after defending judges over Opposition figure Miguna's saga

The Chief Justice defended judges against claims that they have been captured by the opposition

Speaking during radio interview, Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichung'wa accused Maraga of protecting judges on the back of recent accusations by Interior CS Fred Matiang'i that they have been captured by the opposition.

Matiang'i questioned the motive of a section of judges to summon him over Miguna's deportation arguing they were colluding with activists and sections of the civil society in an ‘unholy alliance’ to embarrass the Executive.

According to Ichung'wa, the Chief Justice is out to protect his officers from taking blame, vowing to strongly oppose what he termed as a plan to to put the judicial arm of government over its executive and legislative counterparts.

''Maraga should drop his bid to make the Judiciary seem above the other arms of the government. We are not going to allow one arm to overlook the others by issuing bias rulings,'' he said.

The MP stated he is not scared and will stand firm to fight against the judicial ‘cartels’.

Maraga on Thursday said judges only issue orders on the basis of the arguments raised before the court. He added that despite the attacks on the Judiciary, no complaint had been filed against any of the judges who dealt with lawyer Miguna Miguna’s deportation.
