The Deputy Chief Justice (DCJ) Philomena Mwilu is alleged to have transacted over Kshs.20 million at the Supreme Court parking lot, her office building and her Kilimani, Nairobi home, the court heard.
Senior Assistant at DPP, Alexander Muteti, who is supporting four petitions seeking to oust Mwilu from public office said that the entire dossier against Mwilu will shock the nation.
The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) also told the court that it had evidence on how the DCJ allegedly made the transactions at the Supreme Court parking lot, her office building and her Kilimani, Nairobi home over seven years ago. JSC further told the High Court that it had knowledge of her alleged communication with a criminal suspect.
The DCJ has been accused of not replying to substantive allegations filed against her by Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji and Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss, George Kinoti. She was also accused of using delay tactics to bar JSC from hearing the petitions to conclusion through filing preliminary objections contending that “the matters raised in the petitions were subjudice because they related to a pending appeal.”
Mwilu has complained that JSC, was biased in handling four petitions against her, adding that there was an ulterior motive behind investigating her over alleged gross misconduct, corruption, tax fraud and falsifying documents.
The issues of lack of integrity and corruption has continued to dog the judicial arm of government despite having gone through vetting to root out corrupt officers and restore confidence in our court systems.
