It's no longer a secret that Justice Said Chitembwe is a man of questionable character after damning evidence revealed how he was being used to determine cases after receiving hefty amounts.
The supposed-to-be Honourable judge was recently exposed prompting Kenyans to call for his dismissal from office. The judge has however remained in office despite the increasing pressure from different Kenyans.
A petition against the judge that was lodged by David Leboo Ole Kisilu and Imgard Beige is currently before the Judicial Service Commission awaiting determination.
However, a new twist has been reported that the petitioners have written to the JSC seeking to withdraw the petition altogether. The two wrote the JSC in person without the knowledge of their lawyers who are now questioning whether their clients are being coerced behind the scenes to withdraw the petitions.
According to a report by a local daily, the two petitioners were recently seen in Mauritania in the company of a top city lawyer. There are fears that the two could have traveled to Mauritania to receive Bribes so that they could withdraw the charges.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
