UHURU writes to MARAGA asking him to drop JUDGE GEORGE ODUNGA for favouring RAILA and NASA

Wednesday August 2,2017-President  Uhuru Kenyatta ‘s Jubilee Party has written a letter to Chief Justice , David Maraga, requesting him to remove Judge George Odunga from all August 8 election cases.

In the letter signed by Jubilee Party head of secretariat, Raphael Tuju, the ruling coalition urged Maraga that Odunga is related to Siaya Senator, James Orengo who is NASA presidential candidate, Raila Odinga‘s chief election agent during the forthcoming general election.


"It was recently revealed that Justice Odunga is related to Siaya Senator James Orengo [yet] the judge has presided over numerous cases where Orengo is retained as advocate," Tuju said .

 Tuju goes on to cite the cases in which Odunga has presided over in which Orengo was representing the Opposition.

"It has come to our attention that the judge has offered to be the only one on duty from July 30 to August 11," Tuju said adding that Odunga has a hidden agenda on why he wants to be the duty judge during the election period.

Tuju says according to the Judicial Ethics Code, Odunga should have disqualified himself from the mentioned cases due to his links to Orengo and Raila.
