The name of Former Chief Justice William Mutunga is one that often elicits mixed feelings among the Kenyan electorate. To some, Mutunga is the renowned patriot who fought for the second liberation. However, to many Kenyans, Mutunga is the saddest part of the infamous judiciary capture by the executive that has ailed Kenya since independence. 

The 2013 Presidential petition ruling hurt many Kenyans. It destroyed the little trust that Kenyans had in the judiciary. The former Chief Justice himself has admitted several times that he does not think the bench made the correct ruling. 

The dismissal of the petition was solely based on technicalities and not the real contents of the submission. There were reports that the former Chief Justice received Ksh 200M in an offshore account as a bribe for the job. 

However, Mutunga has quashed these reports insisting he had never received a dime as a bribe. He also revealed he wanted to sue Kalonzo Musyoka but dropped the issue after Raila announced he respected the court's decision. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
