The Judiciary has responded to an alleged tweet by Supreme Court Judge Njoki Ndung'u that Chief Justice Martha Koome was compromised. 

The Judiciary has responded to a tweet alleged to be from Lady Justice Njoki Ndung’u that Chief Justice Martha Koome was compromised in the presidential petition ruling.

In a tweet on Tuesday, September 27, the Judiciary flagged the tweet purportedly from the Supreme Court judge as fake information.

According to the fake tweet, five of the seven Supreme Court judges were in favour of a re-run in the presidential polls but the CJ was compromised.

Lady Justice Njoki Ndung'u was among the seven-judge bench that dismissed the presidential petition before the Supreme Court.

The fake tweet came hours after the apex on Monday issued a full judgement in its decision to uphold President William Ruto’s victory.

In a 133-page document, the Supreme Court maintained that the decision to dismiss the presidential petition was unanimous maintaining that the Head of State was validly elected.

“The Court dismissed the consolidated Presidential Election Petition. The Court upheld the declaration of William Ruto as the President-elect as valid under Article 140(3) of the Constitution,” read part of the judgement.

Lady Justice Njoki Ndung'u.

The apex court dismissed many of the issues raised by the petitioners in the case as lacking credible evidence and proof.
