The Star in legal tangle with Judiciary

01 July 2014, 15:58 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Chief Justice, Willy Mutunga has written to the management of The Star newspaper seeking detailed clarification over allegations that judges received bribes in the election petitions against some governors.

Mutunga said a story published by the newspaper over the weekend alleging that a Supreme Court judge received money to influence a 'judgment in favour of one of the 47 governors' was serious and requires immediate appropriate action.

“This report is extremely troubling not only because it calls into question the integrity of judicial officers, but also because it suggests that justice is for sale,” said Mutunga.

“As you are aware, the fight against corruption is one of the pillars of our efforts to guarantee access to justice for all Kenyans. Corruption is a serious offence with clear sanctions in law,” he added.

The CJ also directed the management of The Star to make a formal report to the police and other security authorities for investigation of the allegations.

The allegations come at a time when Judiciary is being probed by the National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) over massive corruption as revealed by the Auditor General’s report.

Several Judiciary officers such as the current Chief Registrar, Anne Amadi, her predecessor Glady’s Shollei, former JSC Senior Counsel Chairman, Ahmed Nassir among others have been interrogated over the scam.

Mutunga is to appear before PAC any time for investigation after failing to respond to last week’s summon due to official engagements abroad.
