On Thursday evening, the two judges were arrested, and their chambers were searched by law enforcement authorities.
According to initial reports, the two were detained in connection with an ongoing investigation into a judicial scandal.
Senator Kipchumba Murkomen of Elgeyo Marakwet has published a statement in response to the detention of the two judges. The Senator took to social media to explain why the judges were jailed, revealing that it was part of a scheme to use the building bridges initiative bill ahead of time.
"The arrest of Justices Chitembwe and Muchelule is part of the wider scheme to intimidate judges to make decisions in favour of the state especially in relation to the BBI case. It's the implementation of the office of judiciary ombudsman in advance and the handshake partners are happy."
This is great and bad news to anti-Building Bridges Initiative and its proponents. The means the proponents are employing is Unthinkable.
