Two Voters File Petition for the Removal of judge Njoki Ndung’u
Barely a month after the supreme court ruling that nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's win, judge Njoki Ndung’u has been...
Francis M. Sakwa and Zacheus Okoth Oliech, want Justice Ndungu and Jacktone Ojwang’ kicked out on grounds of gross misconduct.
The two claim that Ndung'u had been in constant communication with President Uhuru Kenyatta's team ahead of the supreme court ruling.
“Judge Njoki Ndungu has at all material times whilst serving as a judge of the Supreme Court openly maintained unprofessional and partial interactions/associations with politicians and political appointees in a manner that does not instil and or enhances independence of the judge,” part of the petition reads.
In his petition, Mboya stated that judge Ndungu had breached her oath of office and misconducted herself through the judgment.
“If the assertion is true, then Justice Njoki Ndung’u ought and must have examined each of the disputed forms on 28th and 29th August 2017 before she delivered her dissenting judgment on 1st September 2017 which she amplified in her detailed dissent judgment on 20th September 2017,” Mboya stated.
The two judges, in their dissenting opinions, argued that Kenyatta's win should not have been nullified, contradicting with the majority.
