NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 23 – Supreme Court judge Isaac Lenaola has made it clear that he will not take an assault on his character lying down.
The superior court judge has launched an offensive of his own and retained the services of advocate Donald Korir to fight the petition challenging his suitability before the Judicial Service Commission.
In this effort he has formally written to telecommunication service provider Safaricom demanding to know how his private call records could have been accessed by one Derrick Ngumu who is seeking his removal from office.
He has also threatened to sue the president’s head of digital communication Dennis Itumbi and the Standard Newspaper for spreading falsehoods through their respective platforms.
Ngumu claims Lenaola held phone conversations and meetings with Raila Odinga’s agents in and around the time he filed a petition challenging President Kenyatta’s electoral victory in the last presidential election.
