Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi sensationally claims that Supreme Court judge Njoki Ndung’u is being used by Jubilee to ‘interfere’ with opposition NASA’s presidential petition.

Photos circulating online shows Jubilee National Vice Chairman David Murathe along with Ndung’u in an unidentified location having drinks.

In the photo, Ndung’u is seen sited at the far corner with another person along with Murathe, a former Gatanga MP.

During Jubilee nominations, Murathe was accused by a section of party candidates of allegedly having preferred candidates in various seats.

Ndung’u, who at one point served as a nominated MP, will seat along with six other Supreme Court judges to listen to a case challenging reelection of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The seven judges will listen to submissions from all parties before making a conclusion on the matter after 14 days period.

Justice David Maraga is expected to lead the team that also comprises his deputy Philomena Mwilu in the crucial case.

In 2013, the outspoken judge also sat in the bench that ruled in favour of President Kenyatta’s election after opposition leader Raila Odinga filing a similar case.
