Maraga pulls surprise move on election day [PHOTO]

The Chief Justice made the rather surprise decision as the voting process continued across the country.

Maraga cast his vote at around 2 pm at his polling station in Bosose primary school in West Mugirango Constituency, Nyamira County.

The Chief Justice was accompanied by his wife, Eucabeth, and did not speak to the press after exercising his right to vote.

He, however, interacted with voters outside the polling station.

Although Maraga had cast his vote in the August 8 election, a section of Kenyans had expected him to keep off from the voting process that has been marred with controversy in some parts of the country.

In 2013, then Chief Justice Willy Mutunga had announced that the Supreme Court judges would not vote to build confidence in the anticipated presidential petition.
