Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua said Sunday he will present a petition for the removal of Justice Esther Maina before the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) for alleged misconduct and corruption.
Speaking in Iten during a church service attended by President William Ruto, Gachagua claimed that Justice Maina declared his wealth proceeds of crime without giving him a chance to defend himself.
He indicated that he would present his complaint before the JSC on Thursday at 2.15 pm.

The law says one cannot take such an action because of the discretion of the judge.
Gachagua had been found with what the judge described as proceeds of corruption.
More than Sh200 million that was found in his bank account was frozen before he got the same back.
This was after he got to power as the DP.
The move was seen as a favor done to him because of his political position.
