The High Court Judge, Justice Said Juma Chitembwe, is facing removal from office after a tribunal recommended his removal.

The findings of the tribunal were presented to President William Ruto at State House on Tuesday afternoon, February 7.

The tribunal was set up by former President Uhuru Kenyatta in response to a recommendation by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) that Chitembwe be removed over allegations of gross misconduct and impropriety.
