Kibaki suspends Baraza, names probe tribunal

Posted by Administrator on January 25, 2012

President Kibaki has suspended Deputy Chief Justice Nancy Baraza and formed a seven man tribunal to probe allegations of misconduct levelled against her.

Lady Justice Baraza, the country’s most senior female judge, was accused of assaulting Ms Rebecca Kerubo and threatening to shoot her on New Year’s eve.

The tribunal is composed of Augustine Ramadhan (Chairman), Prof Judith Behemuka, Philip Ransley, Surinder Kapila, Beuttah Siganga, Grace Madoka and Prof Mugambi Kanyua.

“In the discharge of its functions, the Tribunal shall: 1) Prepare and submit a report and its recommendations thereon to me expeditiously. 2) Exercise all the powers conferred upon it by law for the proper execution of its mandate,” President Kibaki stated in a Gazette Notice.

He added: “In the meantime, Honourable Lady Justice Nancy Makokha Baraza, the Deputy Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Kenya stands suspended from exercising the
functions of her office with immediate effect according to Article 168(5) of the Constitution.”

Justice Baraza’s, in the period of her suspension, will be on half salary until she is removed from office or reinstated.

The establishment of the tribunal follows a petition by the Judicial Service Commission asking him to suspend the judge and establish a tribunal to investigate her conduct. (READ: JSC wants Baraza out)

The commission asked President Kibaki to appoint a tribunal to investigate her conduct in line with Article 168 (4) of the Constitutiong a Village Market security guard, Ms Rebecca Kerubo.

The Deputy CJ has already indicated her willingness to face the tribunal. (READ: Baraza: No retreat, no surrender)

“I want to go through the due process so that my side of the story can come out,” she said in an interview with The Nation.

She has retained lawyers George Oraro, Chacha Odera and Cyprian Wekesa to act for her on the matter.

Ms Kerubo alleges that the judge pinched her nose when confronted after ignoring security screening, admonished her, asked her bodyguard to shoot her and then brandished a pistol when the male officer refused to do as ordered.

Ms Baraza has since denied the claims.

    Kwa bibi Kerubo, katiba mpya imeanza Ugonjwa tulioambukizwa na serikali ya Kanu ya kuwadharao, kuwasimanga na kuwakandamiza wanyonge bila sababu zozote sasa itakuwa ndoto kwao. Kila Mkenya ana haki ya kutendewa haki bila kutazama hadhi na wadhifa wake katika jamii.

    Kwa bibi Kerubo, katiba mpya imeanza kufanya kazi. Kwetu sisi Ugonjwa tulioambukizwa na serikali ya Kanu ya kuwadharao, kuwasimanga na kuwakandamiza wanyonge bila sababu zozote sasa itakuwa ndoto kwao. Kila Mkenya ana haki ya kutendewa haki bila kutazama hadhi na wadhifa wake katika jamii.

    How about Uhuru and Muthaura? Are they too Kikuyu to let go?

  4. faith said

    Just wondering the same thing. What is worse crime against humanity or a bar brawl? Though Muthaura is Meru not Kikuyu. But seems like only certain people can be disciplined

    • Jane said

      Why do you bring in tribalism in this conversation?Do you have a grudge again’st Kikuyus.Kiuks are Kenyans just like you.You talk as though Mrs Baraza is your sister.

      • faith said

        By the way I happen to be Kikuyu damu. Just comparing the gravity of the crimes committed here. And lets face it Kibaki is very tribal

      • Kenyan victim 0001 said

        Jane we have what we call FACTS and Truth. Would you suspend somebody for murder or for slapping . Why is it always painfall when truth is stated. If Baraza was a kikuyu, Baba would just keep quiet and act like nothing happened.And for your information,tribal politics will never end regardless of who is the President.

    Jane! go buy a plot in any Kikuyu area ,then is when you know other parts of Kenya belong to one tribe only.

    • Jane said

      Why would you want to buy a plot in Muranga, if I you are not a Kikuyu.I would not want to buy a plot in Luhya land or Maasai land or Luo land if I,m not one of them.I would feel out of place.Just like african americans they stay in neighborhoods where there are other blacks.Even Kenyans in america go to kenyan churches.This is just an identity thing.I would love to see a Kenya where people would love one onother regardless of tribe.

    Dhihirisho ya kwamba katiba mpya imeanza kufanya kazi kwa kuwatendea Wakenya wa tabaka mbalimbali haki imeonyeshwa leo na rais Kibaki. Ogonjwa tulioambukizwa na serikali ya Kanu kwa zaidi ya miongo minne ya kuamini kwamba kuna baadhi ya Wakenya wenzetu ambao nyadhifa zao katika jamii ni duni sasa umefika mwisho. Bi Baraza, ambaye anashilia cheo kikubwa katika mahakama kuu ya Kenya, alionyesha madharao makubwa kwa kuvuta na kuviriginya pua la mama huyo na zaidi ya hayo kutisha kumpiga risasi mbele ya halaiki ya umma.

      English Please!!!!. Write in a language we can all understand!. Some of us are from UK and swahili and Kikuyu are not always in our menu.

      • Kili said

        Kiswahili ni lugha ya taifa!!!!

      • ITHAVETHI said

        Bw Onyango, unajua maana ya neno “jambo” na “habari za nyumbani?” Jambo ni GREETINGS na “habari za nyumbani” ni NEWS FROM HOME. Tuko pamoja ndugu. Bw Onyango wacha kujifanya hujui kiswahili kana kwamba ulisomea INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, PEMBROKE HOUSE, ST. ANDREWS TURI, GREENHILL SCHoOL au RIFT VALLEY ACADEMY ambazo ni shule za wazungu? Kama wewe ni Mjaluo kama una
        unavyodai, basi ulisomea shule za msingi za Awasi, Ahelo, Nyalgunga, ambako lugha ya kiswahili ilikuwa lazima. Kuishi UK sio kumaanisha kwamba kiswahili ni lugha duni. Wewe ni sampuli ya wakenya kutoka kabila la Wajaluo ambao wakiona vinono, wanasahau walikotoka. Kiswahili si Kikikuyu na vise versa. Ipende lugha ya taifa hata kama umebarikiwa kuishi UK. You gotta be proud of your heritage Sir. The writer is a Turkana and he loves kiuks, jathes,kambas etc because they are wonderful people. As your name suggest, you seems to be having issues with kikuyus if you cannot differenciate between swahili and kikuyu words and expressions. Bure kabisa.

    • Kenyan victim 0001 said

      Mbona hiyo Dhihirisho ya Katiba mpya hatimizwi kwa Uhuru na Muthaura.Samahani tena sana hakuna neno katika kiswahili kama (anashilia)

    Thats why I support FGM because those who have undergone the cut are able to act with restrain even in difficult situations .The president should not only suspend this lady but also suspend all her licences and deny her the opportunity to serve in the public offices.

    • ITHAVETHI said

      Eeeh.. Irene. Wakumbushe mara kwa mara kwamba msichana hatahirishwi tu kinembe, anatahirishwa pia mawazo, kutojihusisha na usherati bwelele, tabia, uvumilivu, unyenyekevu, tahadhari, hekima, akili ya kutambua hili na lile, utu, uaminifu, utendaji wema kwa wote na haya yote yanakwenda sambamba na uleaji mwema wa mtoto. Kwa Bi Baraza, nina hakika alikwisha lipitia tendo lile. Shida yake ni kujiona mkubwa zaidi kiasi cha kuwachukia watu ambao machowe, ni duni na hafifu. Wakumbuka kisa cha Goliathi na Daudi? Basi yeye ni kama alirudisha picha ya video nyuma miaka zaidi ya elfu mbili.
