Nyeri Town Member of Parliament Wambugu Ngunjiri has filed a petition seeking the removal of Chief Justice David Maraga from office.

The legislator is questioning the CJ’s suitability after the judge along with the other Supreme Court judges failed to attend the Presidents joint parliamentary session address on Tuesday 11th an indication, according to the MP, that the Chief Justice does not recognise Uhuru Kenyatta as the President of Kenya.

“I am challenging his conduct. We have had a lot of judicial issues. What we have is a group of people who have taken captive of the judiciary,” the MP said.

Hon Ngunjiri said that the CJ must be removed from office over what he terms ‘gross misconduct’ following the Supreme Court’s ruling that annulled the President Kenyatta’s election win.
