MARAGA and his Judiciary are rotten to the core – They used Sh 5.4 million to pay for a lawyer of corrupt DCJ MWILU

Thursday March 28, 2019-Auditor General, Edward Ouko, has revealed that the Judiciary improperly spent Sh5.4 million to hire a lawyer for Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.

In a report he forwarded to Parliament on Wednesday, Ouko stated that the Judiciary under the leadership of Chief Justice, David Maraga, irregularly hired a lawyer to represent Mwilu who is facing corruption charges.

Tabling the report in parliament on Thursday, Leader of Majority in Parliament, Aden Duale, noted that the hiring of Masha Barasa was unnecessary and a waste of taxpayers’ money.

“The payment receipts for the year reflects a figure of Ksh63, 181,280 for consultancy services,” Duale said.

“Included in this payment is a fee of Ksh5, 400,000 paid to a Masha Namusi Barasa, who was legal counsel to the Deputy Chief Justice,” Duale added.

Duale, who is also the Garissa Town MP, said it is bad for the DCJ to use taxpayers’ money to hire a lawyer to represent him in a corruption case filed by the state.

Mwilu is facing charges of using her office to obtain Sh 12 million non-taxed loan from collapsed Imperial Bank of Kenya

This happened in 2015 when she was Court of Appeal Judge.
