In Summary
  • Another petition had been filed by Mr Jared Ongeri seeking the probing of judges Mohamed Ibrahim, Jackton Ojwang, Smokin Wanjala and Njoki Ndung’u.
  • Mr Dimbil accuses the CJ of attending political rallies in Kisii and Nyamira, bringing disrepute to his office and violating public trust.

The Judicial Service Commission has received a new petition that seeks the removal of Chief Justice David Maraga.

The petition filed by Mr Yussuf Ibrahim Dimbil makes several allegations against Mr Maraga ranging from tribalism to attending political rallies.

Mr Dimbil, through law firm Charles Koech & Associates, accuses Mr Maraga of lifting a quote from a judgment that was yet to be delivered.

The petition indicated that the CJ, in a concurring opinion in the Laikipia gubernatorial petition delivered on February 8, made reference to Wajir gubernatorial election petition, which had not been delivered. The judgment on the latter was delivered on February 15.
