LSK attacks GACHAGUA badly for calling for the sacking of JUSTICE ESTHER MAINA.

Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - The Law Society of Kenya(LSK) has slammed Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, over his intention to petition for the removal of High Court Judge Esther Maina.

Gachagua, on Sunday, declared his intention to seek the removal of Justice Maina from office, citing misconduct and corruption.

The second in command accused the judge of declaring his hard-earned wealth amounting to Ksh202 million, proceeds of corruption, without allowing him to be heard.

Reacting to Gachagua's remarks, LSK President Eric Theuri dismissed the DP's utterances against the judge as reckless, given his office.

"We take great exception to the statements that were made by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua. 

"To suggest that a court is wrong or corrupt merely because it made a decision against you is not only reckless but also a case of tragicomedy," the LSK boss stated.

"It suggests to us that the deputy president does not understand the public trust that repossesses in his office and the requirements contained in the public offices' ethics act and the constitution that the actions and utterances of public officers must bring honour and respect to the offices that they hold," he added.

Gachagua is expected to file the petition against Justice Maina on Thursday afternoon.
