The suspended Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu is facing 13 counts of abuse of office, obtaining the execution of a security by false pretense, failure to pay taxes to the Kenya Revenue Authority, forgery and uttering a false document.

For the whole of Thursday, the troubled DCJ has been trending on Twitter for the better part of the day for all the wrong reasons with a good number of Kenyans displaying her inefficiency to belong in the judiciary system.

City Lawyer Nelson Havi now claims that the Directorate of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations could be behind the suspended Deputy Chief Justice troubles.

Havi claims that the CJ previously had attended an anti-corruption conference where he called out the DCI and DPP for condoning social media vilification of the Judiciary. He claims that the two remained silence on the same.

Posting on his twitter account he said,

“The CJ attended an anti-corruption conference early in the year. He called out the DCI and DPP for condoning social media vilification of the Judiciary. There was a studious silence from the two. Are they responsible for the mudslinging campaign against DCJ Philomena Mwilu?.”

Havi claims that Mwilu has for a while remained to be subject of targeted malicious prosecution and media vilification.


The two agencies lost to Mwilu earlier this month where a five-judge bench comprising of justices Hellen Omondi, William Musyoka, Mumbi Ngugi, Chacha Mwita and Francis Tuiyot ruled that Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji lacked the legal basis to indict judge Mwilu as the evidence was illegally obtained.

They both threatened the start of a long journey of battle where Kinoti claimed that he was not surprised at the turn of events but vowed to soldier on with attempts to nail the judge.
