A High Court judge presiding over a petition filed against Trans-Nzoia Governor Patrick Khaemba has revealed that unknown individuals have threatened and attempted to bribe him.

Justice Anthony Mrima on Tuesday warned both parties and counsels in the petition that he will not be intimidated by anybody, and that he will decide the case filed by two voters according to the law.

"I have noted that there has been acts of threats on court. I have been threatened and even written letters," said Justice Mrima.

Justice Mrima, without mentioning names, added that there have been concerted attempts to bribe him in order to rule in favour of one party.

"My message is very clear and let it go down to everybody I will decide this case on the basis of Law and evidence and I will not be intimidated by anybody," he warned.


The two voters, Robinson Simiyu Mwanga and Alpha Kitazi Chore, filed the petition on October 9 challenging Mr Khaemba's poll victory.
