Court orders to Matiang'i had mistakes - CJ Maraga



Chief Justice David Maraga on Thursday admitted that some court orders in the controversial Miguna Miguna case to CS Fred Matiang’i and other cases may have had mistakes.

In a statement to address the ongoing attack on the judiciary by the executive, the Chief Justice acknowledged that while some court orders may have mistakes, the person served with the orders can only reverse them by rebutting in a Higher court.
“While some of the orders had mistakes, they should be taken to the court of appeal for further arbitration.
“As an arm of government tasked to be custodians of the law, we are in charge,” the CJ said in a statement seen by Pulselive.co.ke.

On Tuesday, while appearing before the National Assembly Security Committee, Dr Matiang’i lamented about judicial officers he said were in a competition to embarrass the government, and stop state officers from performing their roles.
“It is an evil clique of judicial officers who want to drag us by the collar through the streets of public opinion,” said Dr Matiang’i, who insisted that the government, in the Miguna case, was condemned unheard.
CS Matiang’i has already appealed the case, in which Justice George Odunga found him in contempt of court, slapping with a penalty of Sh200,000 which would be deducted from his salary this month.
