Drop your petition against judge, MP tells Wa­home

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

Yatta MP Fran­cis Mwan­gangi has asked Kan­dara MP Alice Wa­home to with­draw her petition against the nom­i­na­tion of Philom­ena Mwilu as Deputy Chief Jus­tice. Mwilu was vet­ted by Par­lia­ment yes­ter­day. In a mem­o­ran­dum on Oc­to­ber 19, Wa­home said Mwilu should not be ap­pointed be­cause she re­ceived a Sh3 mil­lion bribe to in­flu­ence the out­come of an elec­tion petition filed in 2008. The Kan­dara MP has asked the anti-graft com­mis­sion to in­ves­ti­gate the bribery claim. Speak­ing dur­ing a meet-the-peo­ple tour in Yatta on Sun­day, Mwan­gangi said Wa­home’s al­le­ga­tions are po­lit­i­cally mo­ti­vated.
