Justice Chitembwe And Muchelule Partially Out Of The Hook After High Court Gives New Orders

High Court judges Aggrey Muchelule and Said Chitembwe have been partially relieved after the High Court in Nairobi ruled that the order to arrest them over the graft cases involving them be lifted. According to the ruling, the High Court has directed that the orders be extended up to February 21 when the case will be mentioned again.

The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji and the Inspector General of police Hillary Mutyambai have been ordered to refrain from arresting the two senior judges pending hearing and determination of their care. The DPP and IG claimed that they confiscated ksh 6 million in their offices which are linked to graft.

However, the Law Society of Kenya under president Nelson Havi who are in the case as amicus curiae argued that the procedure laid down jn arresting judges and magistrates was not followed as per the law. Chief inspector Karisa Banzi told court that he got huge amounts of US dollars in justice Chitembwe and Muchelule offices, allegations which were refuted by both as not bribe money.
