Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu has exposed that Supreme Court Judges were threatened and intimidated following their ruling that nullified the August 8 Presidential Election.
Speaking during the post-election seminar being held in Mombasa on Monday, March 5, Mwilu held that despite the threats, her decisions were in no way influenced or made under duress.
“I am not sure whether the threats cowed the judges as to affect our subsequent decisions. But the threats never entered my soul and I thank God it never did,” Mwilu said while addressing legislators of the National Assembly.
Kapenguria MP Samuel Muroto brought up the burning issue when he asked the DCJ if the decision to nullify President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory subsequently led to the four Judge bench being threatened.
