Jubilee has 170 MPs, 164 elected and six nominated. Less than 50 attended yesterday’s meeting, which they described as “a lecture”. “We are not children yet we are being treated as such. We cannot have a situation where we are called and read a riot act all the time,” said an angry MP who attended the meeting ATTORNEY GENERAL Paul Kihara Mwangi but did not want to be named for fear of victimisation. The boycott drew the President’s anger and he reportedly threatened “punitive action” on those who will not attend future Parliamentary Group meetings. “It was like a lecture room where the lecturer comes, lectures and gives the students assignments which he will then review. For us, it was worse because we were not even given a chance to ask questions after the lecture,” said an MP from the Rift Valley.

It can’t, and will not, change. We will treat Zuma with dignity and we will not humiliate him.” Speaking during a press conference yesterday, Magashule said the decision to recall Zuma was taken after “exhaustive discussions”. “We must treat Zuma as the President of South Africa. He has not been found guilty by a court of law. We didn’t take this decision because he did something wrong,” he said. Magashule said Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa must take over the presidency in line with the Constitution. “When we took this decision, it was because we have a new President of the ANC and we need to ensure alignment. President Ramaphosa will deliver the State of the Nation Address,” he said. Magashule said South Africa is confronted with a myriad of socioeconomic challenges that Ramaphosa can deal with under his leadership. “This is the time for hope and renewal,” he said. The reported decision to “recall” him followed marathon talks by senior party officials. If Zuma, 75, does not budge, he will face a vote of no-confidence in Parliament which he is expected to lose. In power since 2009, he has been dogged by corruption allegations. Zuma has resisted increasing pressure to quit since December, when Ramaphosa replaced him as leader of the ANC. Magashule delivered a letter to the embattled president at his official residence in Pretoria, officially informing him of the party’s decision to “recall” STAR SURVEY him. In the report, the president had agreed in principle to resign and proposed time frames extending from three to six months. But ANC said South Africa is going through a period of uncertainty and anxiety as a result of the unresolved transition. WHAT HAS ZUMA DONE WRONG? Zuma’s presidency has been overshadowed by allegations of corruption which he has denied. In 2016, South Africa’s highest court ruled that Zuma had violated the Constitution when he failed to repay government money spent on his private home. Last year, the Supreme Court of Appeal ruled he must face 18 counts of corruption, fraud, and money-laundering relating to a 1999 arms deal. Zuma’s links to the wealthy Gupta family, who are alleged to have influenced the government, have caused his popularity to plummet. High Court judge George Odunga is one of the high-profile figures affected in the transfers made by Chief Justice David Maraga yesterday. Odunga, who has been serving at the Judicial Review Division in Nairobi, often rattling the Jubilee administration, has been moved to the High Court in Machakos as the presiding judge. His place will be taken by Justice Pauline Nyamweya, who has been transferred from Machakos. Justice John Mativo leaves the constitutional division to join the Judicial Review Division. Odunga has come under attack from Jubilee politicians because of his courage and impartiality. Months ago, Jubilee MPs planned to introduce a motion of no-confidence against the judge, a decision that was criticised by the opposition and the Judiciary. Among the decisions that rattled many is one that found county returning officers and their deputies were illegally appointed just a day to the repeat presidential petition. The decision was overturned by the Court of Appeal. Other judges affected in the transfer include principal judge of the High Court Justice Richard Mwongo, who has been moved to Naivasha. Justice Joel Ngugi has been moved to preside over the Nakuru law court from Kiambu. Judge Christine Meoli moves from Naivasha to Kiambu. Others judges are Maureen Odero from Nakuru to Nairobi at the civil division, while Justice Lydia Achode has been moved from the Family Division in Nairobi to the High Court in Eldoret. Judge George Kimondo, who was the presiding judge in Eldoret, has been moved to Kisii. Justice Jacqueline Kamau will sit in Nairobi from Voi, while Justice Wilfrida Onkwanyi moves from Kisii to the Constitutional and Human Rights division in Nairobi. Others are Justice Rose Ougo, who has been transferred from the family division in Nairobi to the High Court in Kisii. Judge Roselyn Aburili moves from the Judicial Review in Nairobi to Bungoma as the presiding judge. Judge Boaz Olao of the Environment and Land Court in Kerugoya replaces Justice Samuel Mukunya who has been serving in Bungoma and who will now sit at the ELC division. Justice Joseph Karanja will preside over the High Court in Homa Bay, while Justice Abida Ali leaves Bungoma for the Family Division in Nairobi.

USAID GEORGE KINOTI DEPOSIT PROTECTION Donates cars in poaching war Transfers 350 police officers High-risk banks to pay more USAID yesterday donated 26 vehicles to the Kenya Wildlife Service to help in the war on poaching. “I know the challenges facing KWS and it is my responsibility and that of the board members to address them. I’m proud of the work KWS is doing and I will do everything to support their work,” Tourism CS Najib Balala said. See Page 11 About 350 police officers from the Flying Squad and the Special Crime Prevention Unit have been transferred. The revamp of the elite police squads became clearer yesterday, as DCI chief George Kinoti announced the trans- fers. They will be replaced by officers from other units. The two units lost about 100 officers in the changes released yesterday. See Page 9 Banks considered high risk will pay higher premiums to the Kenya Deposit Insurance Corporation to avert bank failure. Banks are charged a flat premium of 0.15 per cent of total deposits for 12 months before the start of the financial year, or Sh300,000 — whichever is higher. KDIC said the corporation plans to introduce riskbased premiums. See Page 15 Wednesday, February 14, 2018 THE-STAR.CO.KE 3 A vendor at the City Market, Nairobi, yesterday.

POLITICAL GOSSIP Who is doing what and where in the world of politics A prominent lawyer who has represented President Uhuru Kenyatta (pictured) in several court cases is among 103 individuals whose title deeds to parcels of land on Woodley Estate were recently canceled by the National Land Commission. The titles for the land in and around Joseph Kang’ethe Estate were revoked after it emerged that the land was irregularly transferred from the now-defunct Nairobi City Council. The land was originally set aside for affordable housing for city residents but ended up in the hands of the 103 individuals who paid a premium of Sh1.1 million for each parcel.

Well, the Opposition legislators allegedly found themselves in the bad books of the Executive over Raila Odinga’s oath. Many are now questioning how Parliament, which is supposed to be an independent body, got involved in the seizure of the vehicles and on whose instructions? Corridors have also noted the loud silence of National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi over the matter, which happened over a week ago. Are the arms of government still independent? A number of police officers on Nairobi’s Umoja Estate fond of using a Probox car are operating with impunity, collecting ‘taxes’ and bullying the locals. Our moles tell us that the officers do rounds of extortion on the estate and later congregate in leisure joints to brag how much they have made in a day. The locals now want Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet to either transfer or discipline them. On Sunday at Umoja 3, locals said the four police officers who normally move as a unit blatantly collected bribes and boasted that they are politically correct and no one can hold them to account for their criminal actions. WERE Jubilee MPs gagged against reacting to NASA leader Raila Odinga’s swearing-in and aftermath? Well, Corridors have learned that some powerful government operatives issued instructions to the politicians against commenting on the crackdown on NASA leaders who spearheaded the oath-taking ceremony. Only the party’s top leadership in Parliament was sanctioned to discuss the issue. President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto have been silent on the issue since, despite intense debate countrywide. IS something fishy going on in the election petitions, many of which have been dismissed? According to our wag, the idea is to uphold most of the results and thereby sanitize the IEBC’s conduct of the last General Election. Well, some senior counsel are mourning the rate at which a number of “tight petitions” have been dismissed. POLITICS 4 THE-STAR.CO.KE Wednesday, February 14, 2018 OUT PRESIDENT CHANGES HIS LEGAL ADVISORY TEAM IN READINESS FOR SECOND TERM TAKE-O Is Uhuru going for Supreme Court? Attorney-General Githu Muigai out as President picks Appeal Court judge Kihara Mwangi and names new nominees to Judicial Service Commission LUKE AWICH AND GIDEON KETER @TheStarKenya President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday dropped Attorney General Githu Muigai and demoted Solicitor General Njee Muturi in changes that ultimately target the Supreme Court and the Judiciary in general. Githu was replaced by Appeal Court President Mwangi Kihara while Njee’s position was taken by lawyer Kennedy Ogetto, who was part of Uhuru’s ICC legal team. But it is the nomination of three members to the Judicial Service Commission that signaled the President’s intention to live up to his threat to revisit the Judiciary. He nominated former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Felix Koskei, former National Assembly clerk Patrick Gichohi and former Kenyatta University Vice-Chancellor Prof Olive Mugenda. Gichohi is a nominee of the Public Service Commission to replace Margaret Kobia, who is set to join Cabinet as Secretary for Public Service. The 11-member commission is responsible for hiring and firing judges and other judiciary staff. It comprises the Chief Justice David Maraga (chair), Deputy CJ Philomena Mbete Mwilu, Justice Smokin Wanjala representing the Supreme Court; Justice Mohamed Warsame representing the Court of Appeal; Justice Aggrey Muchelule representing (High Court) and Emily Ominde (magistrate) representing the Kenya Judges and Magistrates Association. Others are Prof Tom Ojienda representing the Law Society of Kenya; and the three being replaced, Attorney-General (Githu Muigai); Prof. Margaret Kobia representing the Public Service Commission; Mercy Mwara Deche and Kinpgetich Bett representing the public appointed by the President with the approval of the National Assembly. The Judiciary Chief Registrar Ann Amadi is the Secretary to the Commission. After the Supreme Court annulled his election on September 1, Uhuru referred to the judges as “Wakora” (crooks) and promised “to revisit the Court” after the repeat election. The three nominees will join the new AG on the JSC, and the balance could easily be tilted if the State has a hand in the election of the other members. “I’ve always said we have a problem with our Judiciary. We shall respect the ruling, but we will revisit this agenda because we have to respect the will of the people,” Uhuru said at the time. The composition of the JSC is crucial. It is the employer of judges and the one that receives petitions and recommends to the President to constitute a tribunal upon finding sufficient grounds. In yesterday’s appointment, the President changed his legal team in what insiders said was strengthening of his advisory structure in preparation for his final term takeoff. He dispatched his Senior Adviser on Constitutional and Legal Affairs, Abdikadir Mohammed, to South Korea as ambassador. The Judiciary, the third arm of government, is supposed to be independent but its authority has been under systematic erosion in recent days, with court orders being frustrated by Executive agencies. As a result, this week, lawyers are staging a “Yellow Ribbon” protest and boycott of the courts. Insiders say the nominations have an eye on succession politics in the Judiciary, especially the Supreme Court. The President did not give reasons why Githu, who stood next to him as he announced it, had resigned. “I have today received with regret the resignation of Professor Githu Muigai from the office of Attorney General effective the date of the appointment of his successor,” Uhuru said. He thanked him for his service to the nation. Confidential sources however said the President has been intending to make changes at the State Law Office since 2016. Githu and Njee, Uhuru’s former Personal Assistant, are said to have been barely coping and not in tandem. At many times, the government’s actions have been called out by the courts for being unconstitutional, which legal analysts put down to bad legal advice or disregard by the Executive. Some sources say Githu had been unhappy for some time as “his counsel was often ignored or not sought” over key matters. He is said to have wanted to leave, with an eye on succeeding Willy Mutunga as Chief Justice when he retired in 2012. He was visibly frustrated during the last Presidential petition, when, as amicus curiae, his brief was manifestly restricted by the Supreme Court. During his tenure, Githu faced severe criticism from his peers, who attempted to impeach and dishonour him over the controversial payment of Sh1.4 billion to Anglo Leasing in 2014. In 2016, Githu beat a hasty retreat after his appeal against a High Court decision striking out an Act of Parliament that required the JSC to submit three names to the President from which to select a Chief Justice suffered a barrage of criticism from professional colleagues. Lawyer Allen Gichuhi, who is contesting for the Law Society of Kenya Wednesday, February 14, 2018 THE-STAR.CO.KE 5 OFF Jubilee MPs boycott State House PG, Uhuru threatens action President Uhuru Kenyatta with outgoing Attorney General Githu Muigai at State House, Nairobi on Sunday / PSCU presidency, described Justice Kihara as an excellent lawyer and a gentleman. “Justice Kihara has been in the Court of Appeal and an able Judge. Am sure he is going to bring such brilliant ideas into the system. Professor Githu was my lecturer and also a very astute and able lawyer,” Gichuhi told the Star yesterday. ICC LAWYER Njee, who was demoted from Solicitor General to the lowly deputy Chief of Staff under Nzioka Waita, has been close to the President for over 20 years, tracing back to his days in Kanu. The former PA and President’s gatekeeper reportedly fell out with his boss over his failure to manage the annulled election. Ogetto, on the other hand, has served as Uhuru’s lawyer for many years and was part of his Kenyan defence team at the International Criminal Court together with Muigai. He was also part of Uhuru’s defence team during the 2013 and the 2017 presidential election petitions at the Supreme Court. The changes complete the overhaul of the prosecution and investigative arms of the State, following the removal of former Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro and Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko, who was nominated to Cabinet as Secretary for Environment. Sources say Ethics and anti-Corruption deputy CEO Michael Mubea is poised to succeed Tobiko. Yesterday National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi told the committee on Legal Affairs to vet the nominees within 14 days. “Given the critical role played by the JSC, it is advisable that the relevant Committee expeditiously proceeds to notify the nominees and the public, commence the approval hearings after the seven-day notification period, and table a Report on or before Tuesday, February 27, 2018, to enable the House to consider the matter within the statutory timelines,” the Speaker said. From PAGE 1 / Yesterday’s meeting was addressed by Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju, Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen, his colleague in the National Assembly Adan Duale, Deputy President William Ruto and President Kenyatta. It lasted less than an hour, according to those who attended. Uhuru is said to have demanded discipline and cooperation from his Jubilee Party MPs as Parliament resumed sittings yesterday. Sources told the Star yesterday that Uhuru has demanded all MPs sponsored to Parliament through Jubilee must toe the party line and secure the government agenda. The Presidential Strategic Communications Unit in it dispatch said that Uhuru emphasised the need for Members of Parliament to work as a team in ensuring that the ruling party delivers on the Big Four agenda. “It is our collective responsibility to ensure that we deliver on the pledges we made to ...
