Wednesday August 2, 2017-Chief Justice, David Maraga has told President Uhuru Kenyatta off for asking him to remove Justice George Odunga from all August 8 election cases.

In a letter to Odunga through, Jubilee Party chairman, Raphael Tuju on Tuesday, Uhuru raised concern over Odunga‘s relationship with NASA chief polls agent James Orengo.

“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 in a letter to Maraga on Tuesday.

In a fast response, Maraga said politicians will not dictate which judge sits on cases and urged those dissatisfied with Jugdes decisions to appeal instead of sending him silly letters.

“Politicians from both NASA and Jubilee should desist from attacking the judiciary,” said Maraga.

Maraga also asked the state to increase security for Justice Odunga a day after Jubilee threatened the judge.

He said Odunga’s life is in danger following threats from Jubilee operatives like Raphael Tuju.


  1. Just as the Hassan led IEBC commissioners were sent home because NASA had demanded so, I think it is only fair that Justice Odunga is not be allowed to hear the election related cases. Otherwise the CJ will be seen to be siding with NASA. Am not in Jubilee but for sure Justice Odunga has not shown his impartiality.

  2. they cant kill us all

  3. I agree with anonymous 07:12. The CJ is clearly out of line here. what does the law say since this CJ is learned enough to read and interprete it without fear of contradiction? Why does everything have to go NASA way? At the end of the day, God is the final CJ

  4. Enter your comment...Nasa must cry on Tuesday midnight 12:00 a.m!

  5. The CJ seems not to comphrehend the gravity of the matter yet he is a learned friend. Just imagine if it was the other way round whee a jubilee friendly judge was related to a lawyer in similar cases? Everybody would be on the rooftop shouting rigging. And why is RAO and his brigade not commenting on this matter? Talk of double standards
