Watch your back, Mutahi Ngunyi warns CJ Maraga after Mwilu arrest

Controversial political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi has fired a warning to the Chief Justice David Maraga: Watch your back!

Mr Ngunyi wondered whether Justice Maraga’s deputy Philomena Mwilu, who was arrested on Tuesday over corruption allegations, would survive before issuing the warning.

“If FORMER Deputy CJ lost her JOB for SLAPPING a Watchman (woman), will Mwilu Survive? Maraga SHOULD watch his BACK as well. “Deputy CJ Philomena Mwilu,” wrote Mr Ngunyi on Twitter.

Justice Mwilu’s predecessor Justice Kalpana Rawal left office at 70 after both the High Court and Court of Appeal ruled that she had to retire at that age as provided in the 2010 constitution.

Justice Rawal, alongside then fellow Supreme Court judge Philip Tunoi, had argued that she was set to retire at age 74 as provided in the repealed constitution, under which she was employed.

Justice Rawal’s predecessor Justice Nancy Baraza was hounded out of office after she was accused of gross misconduct for pinching the nose of a security guard at Village Market.
