Raila’s lawyer reveals worrying details after Maraga’s directive on repeat Polls

The Lawyer has also questioned the lack of quorum at Supreme court

Speaking during a presser at Supreme Court, Orengo said that the lack of quorum of the Supreme Court is not by mistake as the Chief Justice has the mandate to mobilize for a quorum.

He added that the attack on Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu was a clear indication that the Supreme Court is under siege.

“The attempt on the P. Mwilu's life is a clear indication that the Supreme Court is under siege. The Chief Justice could not mobilize a quorum & the (lack of) quorum of the Supreme Court is not by accident” said Orengo during a presser

The Chief Justice David Maraga declined to hear a petition filed by three voters who wanted the Supreme Court to stop the repeat election scheduled for Thursday October 26.

Maraga stated that Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu was not in a position to preside over a court process based on an incident where her driver was shot and injured on Tuesday evening.

Another judge, Mohamed Ibrahim, was out of the country seeking treatment.

The matter had been scheduled to take place at 10 am but Maraga appeared slightly after an hour when he announced that the case could not proceed.

The Chief Justice stated that the annex court lacked quorum since most of his colleagues could not make it for the session.

Maraga stated that Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu was not in a position to preside over a court process based on an incident where her driver was shot and injured on Tuesday evening. Another judge, Mohamed Ibrahim, was out of the country seeking treatment.

Judges Smoking Wanjala, Jacktone Ojwang', and Njoki Ndung'u were said to be outside the city and had failed to get means to get to Nairobi on time.

The situation meant that only Maraga and Justice Isaac Lenaola which was less that the quorum of five, needed to hear such a matter.

The senator is expected to led the Anti-IEBC protests at Uhuru Park.
