‘Kuna agenda!’ K.O.T Troll Magistrate in Mwilu’s case

Anti-corruption Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi has found himself on the receiving end of some life threatening tackles after he failed to halt criminal charges against Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu as had been directed by the High Court.

The Magistrate ruled that the matters orders by High Court temporarily blocking the DCJ’s casedo not apply to the case before him. He said that there was an error in the case number.
“I don’t want to amend the orders of the court, that will be trespassing on dangerous areas. I am only guided by an order that is clear and specific. So this order, in my view, does not apply to this case,” ruled Magistrate Mugambi.

And now Kenyans believe that the Magistrate is acting under someone’s instructions, since making such a big issue based on a small printing error cannot just happen.

A section of Kenyans also don’t understand why a Magistrate can disobey a court order from a superior court.

The following are some of the reactions from Kenyans on Twitter.
