Judiciary Committee delays Tunoi bribery verdict

03 February 2016, 17:03

Nairobi - The Judicial Service Commission JSC Special Committee tasked to probe bribery allegations against Supreme Court Judge Philip Tunoi has been given more time to compile its report.

Capital News reports that Committee Chairperson Professor Margaret Kobia says they need time until Friday to finish analysing evidence collected from those mentioned in the saga.

“The committee was given today’s deadline of 3rd February, 2016 to submit the final report of its finding to the commission. The committee has however not been able to complete the report and has sought and obtained extension of time from the Judicial Service Commission to complete its work by Friday 5th February, 2016,” she said Wednesday as quoted in the report.

The committee received evidence from seven people including Justice Tunoi and his accuser Geoffrey Kiplagat.

According to The Standard, Kobia said the JSC will meet on Friday afternoon to receive and deliberate the special committee’s report.

The members of the JSC charged with determining what action should be taken against Tunoi are Prof Kobia, Attorney General Githu Muigai, High Court Justice Aggrey Muchelule, Magistrate Emily Ominde, Winnie Guchu and Kipkorir Bett.

“The committee reiterates its commitment to a just, fair and accountable process” Prof Kobia added.

The committee on Monday heard from Kiplagat who, through an affidavit, accused Tunoi of receiving a KES 200 million bribe from Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero in order to ensure that he emerged victorious over now-Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu who had challenged his election.
