Chief Justice's accounts hacked

16 October 2013, 10:04

Nairobi - Unknown individuals have hacked Chief Justice Willy Mutunga’s communication channels, including his e-mail and Twitter accounts.

The Judiciary stated that Mutunga’s telephone conversations had also been tapped and his meetings secretly recorded for reasons yet to be established.

The Judiciary disclosed that it had opened investigations culprits behind the violations would "face the full wrath of the law."

“The Judiciary is determined to eliminate surveillance culture by closing in on the small cowardly and criminal enterprises that believe it can violate official and private communication at will,” it stated.

The Judiciary has in recent weeks been in the spotlight over allegations of hatching a scheme to throw out the Chief Registrar, Gladys Shollei, who critics argue is an impediment to the institution's goings-on.

Leaked emails from the Judiciary revealed a well-orchestrated plan with the Chief Justice being in the middle of the grand plan.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is probing the Judiciary over allegations of impropriety.
