Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has dismissed a petition seeking to kick out Chief Justice David Maraga, his deputy Philomena Mwilu and 5 others from the Judicial Service Commission.

In his petition that was to be handled by the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee, Mr Njenga had sought to remove the CJ, his deputy and other members of the JSC from office over claims of incompetence and gross misconduct.

The petitioner had hoped to have MPs request the President to form a tribunal to bring Mr Maraga and Ms Mwilu to their defence and could have possibly seen them lose their positions at the Supreme Court.

Other members of the JSC targeted by Mr Njenga include Justices Mohammed Warsame of the Court of Appeal and Aggrey Muchelule of the High Court, Prof Tom Ojienda, Ms Emily Ominde and Ms Mercy Deche.
