Waititu's move ahead of full judgement revealed

The move is extremely damning even after the CJ's warning.

The governor is set to lead hundreds of Kiambu County residents outside the Supreme Court to hear the full ruling that nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election. The full judgement, according to the Supreme Court, is set for release today.

However, drama is set to unfold as there is a heavy presence of police at the Court yard, after a humiliating comment by the CJ David Maraga accusing Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet of ‘refusing to provide security at the judiciary installations.’

"It is coming to light now how the judges conspired in the nullification of the presidential election. We know Uhuru won and we demand the Chief Justice resigns from office," he told residents during demonstrations on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Jubilee supporters in various parts of the country held protests against the Supreme Court judges saying the ruling robbed them of their victory.

The supporters have moved to demand that the two implicated judges be axed on merits of lacking impartiality.

Police were forced to lob tear gas to disperse those who held demonstrations around the Court premises.

"We will also go to Nairobi since it is for all of us and the ruling will be read while we are outside. We are not afraid and there is no way we will be snatched power by force," the Kiambu county boss said.

Deputy Governor James Nyoro said Kenyans voted peacefully for Uhuru and claimed the Court was manipulated to deny Kenyans justice.

"That is why we must say with one voice, Chief Justice Maraga must go," he said.

Abolish judiciary

Maraga has dared critics to call for a referendum to abolish the judiciary "if they are tired" of it.

He defended judges and petitioners, saying he was ready to "pay the ultimate price" to protect the Constitution.

He said the Judiciary has been assailed, threatened and reviled by politicians and on social media since the ruling on September 1.

Three petitions have been filed before the JSC to eject Maraga, Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu and Justice Isaac Lenaola for gross misconduct.

A petitioner alleges Mwilu and Lenaola had meetings with Opposition leaders as the case challenging Uhuru's election was ongoing.

Uhuru said he does not agree with the ruling but said he would respect it.

He has been criticised for calling the judges crooks and making ethnocentric remarks against the Chief Justice.
