Report: Tunoi vows to reveal Judicial corruption

26 January 2016, 14:41 William Korir

Nairobi - According to reports, Justice Philip Tunoi, the man behind  a suspected bribery scandal worth KES 200 million is threatening to expose the severity of corruption scandals at the Judiciary.

Tunoi has been severely mentioned in a scandal which he is said to have accepted the cash in exchange for letting Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero slide away with an election petition.

He has been accused by a Geoffrey Kiplagat who says he facilitated the exchange of money.

But according to Tunoi, the corruption at the Judiciary extends way past him and he now says that he will expose the rot in the Judiciary if he is hung out to dry.

" The Justice is not going to go down alone. He is going to expose much more if the probe continues," an aide to the Judge told News24 in confidence.

The claim is that there are many election petitions that had corrupt handling, including the one which granted President Uhuru Kenyatta his way in the 2013 polls.

Kiplagat says in his affidavit that he met Kidero in person in a petrol station in Nairobi and that he communicated on a number of occasions with Tunoi.

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga said Monday that he had convened a special sitting of the Judiciary Service Commission to probe corruption allegations facing Justice Philip Tunoi.

" This is a serious issue that needs close scrutiny," he said of the probe.

" The fact that such allegations can be made in a sworn affidavit against a senior official in the Judiciary is an indicator of serious flaws and the need to ensure it is seriously probed," he added.

Tunoi will however in the meantime not face any suspension in the meantime as the probe continues.

On the other hand, Kidero has denied having any part in the said transactions, saying that he was not involved in the matter.
