A lawyer has petitioned the National Assembly to initiate the removal of Chief Justice David Maraga, Deputy CJ Philomena Mwilu, and five JSC members for gross misconduct.
Adrian Njenga wants Justice Mohammed Warsame, Aggrey Muchelule, Tom Ojienda, Emily Ominde, and Mercy Deche kicked out of the Judicial Service Commission.
He argues that the lot is unfit to hold the office as JSC members and “should be removed for serious violation of the Constitution.”
Njenga says: “The aforementioned have failed to promote and facilitate the independence and accountability of the Judiciary and the transparent administration of justice.”
Njenga accused the persons named in the petition of having shielded, protected and exonerated judges engaged in gross misconduct.
“They have without any constitutional regard or justification dismissed petitions presented to the JSC,” he avers in his letter to the National Assembly.
