BY NAMULONGO PETER, NAIROBI ,28TH AUG 2018-Police have arrested deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu outside the Supreme Court.
The dramatic arrest happened very fast immediately Mwilu came out of the supreme court she could be seen entering her car in the company of bodyguards but her vehicle was soon trailed by detectives in unmarked cars.
It will be remembered that www.upesinews.co.ke three weeks ago carried a story which the chief justice David Maraga invited the ethics and anti corruption commission to investigate the alleged misappropriation of funds at the judiciary.
Mwilu’s arrest came minutes after a meeting of the Judicial Service Commission that was called over an ongoing probe into allegations of misconduct over cases involving Imperial Bank.
DCI George Kinoti and Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji who have been pursuing the case were within the precincts of the Supreme Court during the JSC meeting.
Kinoti’s vehicle and others carrying detectives were seen driving behind the DCJ as they headed to the DCI headquarters in Kiambu Road.
