Nairobi - The tribunal investigating bribery allegation against former Supreme Court, Philip Tunoi has ended its sittings.
In February, President Uhuru Kenyatta formed a 7-member tribunal to investigate Tunoi over claims that he had received KES 200 million bribe from Nairobi Governor, Evans Kidero to rule in his favour in an election petition filed by by Kabete MP Ferdinand Waitutu, who was his main competitor in the 2013 gubernatorial election.

Tunoi was however relieved off his duties at the Supreme Court two weeks ago after attaining the retirement age of 70 years.
This, Daily Nation reports, is what prompted the tribunal to wind up its operations.
According to The Star, the tribunal chair Sharad Rao will prepare a report on their findings and give it to the President without making a conclusion.
