Human rights activist Okiya Omtata wants Nyeri MP Derrick Ngunjiri Wambugu declared unfit to hold public office over his petition against the Chief Justice David Maraga.
In a petition Omtata queries the conduct of Wambugu as a state officer, and want his petition against the CJ quashed and the CJ compensated for violation of his rights.
Omtata argues Wambugu attacked the school that trains officers of the court by alleging that the CJ created an obtuse accountability framework within the judiciary through the body that reports directly to him.
He terms the petition as wild, unjustified, malicious, and fishy which amounts to violation of the provisions of Article 73 and 75 of the constitution.
He further contends that Wambugu’s choice of singling out the CJ from majority decision of four Judges is discriminatory and erodes public confidence in the office of CJ.
