Maraga’s removal Petition takes new twist after Uhuru’s Order

Breaking News

This comes hours after National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen denounced any association with the petition.

The duo said that the Ngunjiri’s petition was not a move by the Jubilee party.

President Kenyatta asked the Nyeri Town Mp to focus on the presidential election set for October 17th, 2017.

"I understand your pain and action but we have an election to win. That has to be our focus. Leave the courts alone,"kenyatta said.

Wambugu filed the petition with the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), challenging the eligibility of Justice Maraga to serve as a judge in the apex court.

Wambugu, who is now one of Jubilee’s vocal leaders, stated that his petition was based on concrete evidence on the irregular and illegal conduct of the Chief Justice over the period he has headed the judiciary.

The Nyeri Town MP listed a number of allegations including accusing Maraga of illegally influencing the decision of the Supreme Court judges to nullify President Kenyatta's election.

He claimed that one of the judges in the apex court, Mohammed Ibrahim, was forced off the bench by Maraga.
