Judge Who Jailed  DCI  Boss George Kinoti in Trouble


A Kenyan businessman Michael Makarina has filed a petition before the Judicial Service Commission seeking the removal of High Court judge Anthony Mrima.

In his petition Makarina says the Mrima lacked impartially and competence in dealing with the case where he sentenced DCI boss George Kinoti to 4 months in prison.

Mrima jailed Kinoti for contempt in a gun case that involved tycoon Jimmy Wanjigi.

In an interview with Ghetto Radio News his lawyer Shadrack Wambui says the petition is watertight and there are so many questions than answers arising from the ruling and that the JSC must now step up and investigate it.

“The petition has already been filed before Judicial service commission so it’s an inquiry as the conduct and the competence of Judge Mrima as far as the  proceedings involving Wanjigi and DCI boss case.” Wambui said

“The Judicial Service Commission be pleased to order the immediate suspension of the Honourable justice Anthony Mrima for his open show of bias, incompetence, corruption, misbehavior and misconduct in the exercise of his judicial functions in Petition no.520 of 2017 between Jimi Wanjigi and another versus Inspector General of Police and 3 others,” reads the petition.

Makarina on the other hand praised Kinoti, stating he was of an admirable character who have served the nation diligently.

“That it is appalling and a clear abuse of the judicial discretion to have witnessed the accused judge run over the Director of Criminal Investigations and to have convicted him to jail for fours months without any other option for the decision of the court…trivializes the role Mr.Kinoti has played to bring security and tranquility in the Country.” Makarina said.
