The process of removal from office of CJ Maraga begins after nullifying President Uhuru’s Win,will it succeed?

BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,14TH SEPT 2017-The process of removal of  Chief Justice David Maraga  has officially kicked off in court  after the Supreme Court nullified   President Kenyatta’s win in the August 8 polls.This is after Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu  on Thursday filed a petition before the Judicial Service Commission seeking the removal of Kenya’s top judge.

In the 14-page petition, Mr Wambugu accuses the president of the top court in the land of “gross misconduct”.

The  newly elected  Jubilee member of parliament  wants the Judicial Service Commission, the employer of judges and magistrates, to investigate the conduct of Judge Maraga since his appointment as Chief Justice.

Mr Wambugu accuses the CJ of instituting “a judicial coup” as the head of the third arm of government.

Wambugu claims Judge Maraga has been held captive by a group of NGOs who have been campaigning against Mr Kenyatta’s presidency since 2013.

He  also says  that Justice Maraga has allowed the non-profits to be embedded in the Judiciary and has been funding a number of programmes, including technical support and training at the Judicial Training Institute.

If the petition filed at the Milimani court will go through ,the process of removal of the CJ will begin.
