UHURU was not aware of DCJ PHILOMENA MWILU’s arrest by DPP HAJI and DCI boss, KINOTI - KALONZO MUSYOKA says as he defends him

Wednesday October 3, 2018 - Wiper Democratic Movement party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, has claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta was not aware of the arrest of Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu in August this year.

In an exclusive interview with Citizen TV’s Hussein Mohamed on Tuesday evening, Kalonzo said Uhuru told him that he was not aware of the arrest and he only knew about it when attending a meeting with United States President Donald Trump in White House.

The former Vice President said the President tried to reach out to Chief Justice David Maraga through Attorney General Kariuki Kihara over the issue.

Kalonzo said Mwilu’s case should have been left in the hands of the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).

Kalonzo was responding to a question on why he appeared in court to defend the DCJ after decades of not being an active advocate.

“Because the matter was weighty, if you really want to deal with the Deputy Chief Justice, you don’t arraign him before a magistrate’s court.”

“What image are you giving to that profession?” Kalonzo stated.

“The President told me he was surprised,” Kalonzo added.

He concluded by saying that the office of the Deputy Chief Justice is the equivalent to the office of the Deputy President in the Executive.

Mwilu was arrested over corruption related charges and her case resumes late this month.
