Supreme Court Judge Mohamed Ibrahim was on Thursday accused of brandishing a gun during an altercation with his security guard.

The incident was reported at the Spring Valley Police Station where police confirmed that investigations had been launched.

Mr Kennedy Nyambega, the lawyer representing Rans Security Services, claims that Justice Ibrahim called the company director at midnight demanding that a new security guard be sent to man his house.


The director obliged and allegedly got to the judge's Spring Valley residence at 4 a. m. with the new guard, only to find Justice Ibrahim livid.

"By the time the two got there, the judge was very angry. During the shouting, he whipped out a pistol and chased them away," the lawyer narrated.

"This is something that happened in someone's house but people are running around causing journalists to swarm me with questions yet we don't know if its true yet," Gigiri OCPD Richard Muguai told Nation reporters.

I don't own a gun - Judge Ibrahim

Justice Ibrahim admitted that he had got into an argument with his security guard, however, he denied that he waved a gun at him.


"I don't even have a firearm license, and neither do I own a gun.

"I believe that it is out of that exchange that the supervisor thought I was threatening him and went to file a report with the police.

"I have no reason at all to threaten a watchman. I have no gun and I have never had one," he defended himself.

The judge is also under investigation by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) on a disciplinary issue.
