Court gives Jubilee MP 14 days to respond to Omtatah gag petition

Nyeri Town Mp Ngunjiri Wambugu has been given 14 days to respond to a petition seeking to bar him from attacking the Chief Justice, Judges of the Supreme Court or any other judicial officer on decisions made while on duty.

High court judge Chacha Mwita gave the directions when the matter came up for mention.

In the case, activist Okiya Omtatah is seeking an order to bar prosecution of any Supreme Court judges including Chief Justice David Maraga following the September 1st judgment on the presidential election petition.

Omtatah claims that the legislator violated rights of the Chief Justice and therefore he should be ordered to pay him 10 million shillings as compensation.

The case will now be heard on the 5th of February 2018.
