The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has received a petition seeking the removal of four Supreme Court judges,Justices Mohammed Ibrahim, Jackton Ojwang, Smokin Wanjala and Njoki Ndung’u over alleged violation of the Constitution during the Wajir gubernatorial petition.
The Supreme Court judges are also accused of gross misconduct as well as breach of the Judicial Code of Conduct and Ethics and Oath of Office.
Removing a judge from office involves setting up a tribunal to investigate the allegations as was the process when Deputy CJ Nancy Baraza was found guilty of misconduct.
In 2012, DCJ Baraza tried to fight the unanimous decision by lodging a complaint at the Supreme Court but later resigned in October citing lack of confidence in the five-judge bench.
In the statement on Wednesday, the JSC noted that they have also received complaints about nine magistrates and five of them were found guilty of gross misconduct.
Lawyer Ahmed Nassir Abdulahi said he will fight for justice till the end.
