Mr Odhiambo argued that CJ Maraga had erred when he claimed that President Uhuru had violated the Constitution without tabling evidence.

He further stated that Justice Maraga violated guidelines that require judges to avoid situations which could disqualify themselves from cases.

Attorney General Kihara Kariuki also condemned Maraga, accusing him of seeking public sympathy to hide his failures and mismanagement of the Judiciary.
