JSC to hear petition seeking to have CJ Maraga sacked

Chief Justice David Maraga is accused over gross misconduct by a man who is set to appear before the Judicial Service Commission next week on Wednesday.

Judicial Service Commission Secretary Anne Amadi has directed Yusuf Ibrahim Dimbil to appear before the commission next week to present his case. Dimbil has been ordered to produce documents for his case and a list of witnesses.

Mr Dimbii had raised various allegations leveled against Maraga which include tribalism, quoting a judgment that was not yet delivered and attending political rallies.

Mr Dimbii’s case will be heard two weeks after the Chief Justice raised concerns over a conspiracy by the Executive to remove him from office. 

Supreme Court in doldrums

The Chief Justice who doubles as the President of the Supreme Court is not the only judge of the Supreme Court who is facing allegations of gross misconduct. His deputy, Philomena Mwilu is also fighting against corruption accusations directed against her. She was vindicated by the five-judge bench ruling that the evidence presented lacked the legal basis to charge her. However,  the DPP wants to reopen the case against Mwilu.

A case relating to Migori Governor Okoth Obado nearly sent Judge Jackton Ojwang home. President Uhuru had set up a tribunal to probe Judge Ojwang following JSC’s recommendations over allegations of conflict of interest arising from Obado’s case.
