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.
