Too much pressure from accross the republic has finally forced Uhuru to prevail on his man Hon Ngunjiri Wambugu to withdraw the petition against CJ David Maraga. The man with big buttocks and MP for Nyeri town made the dramatic announcement on his official twitter handle and Facebook page.
Uhuru ally and Jubilee Nyeri town MP Hon Wambugu Ngunjiri had filed a petition against Chief Justice David Maraga question the judge’s suitability at the Judicial Service Commission yesterday Thursday 14th September.
The move by Hon Ngunjiri came days after the Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win during the August 8 general election.
The Nyeri Town MP said Maraga must be removed from office over what he called ‘gross misconduct’ following the ruling.
“I am challenging his conduct. We have had a lot of judicial issues. What we have is a group of people who have taken captive of the judiciary,” he said.
Ngunjiri said he has concrete evidence that he will table before court to ensure Maraga is removed from the Judiciary.
In his historic decision on September 1, the CJ nullified Uhuru’s win saying IEBC did not conduct the elections as stipulated in the law.
But his decision, which was welcomed by many as a rare sign of independence of Kenya’s judiciary, did not go well with the Jubilee Party.
After the ruling, Uhuru said if he wins the October 17 vote, he will ‘fix’ the Judiciary.
The president called the chief justice a crook in some of the personalised attacks shaping the fresh election political discourse.
