Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has summoned Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to appear before them and shed light on the corruption accusations he made against High Court judge Said Juma Chitembwe.

In a letter signed by Chief Registrar Ann Amadi, JSC has directed Sonko to appear in person before the commission within seven days.

“In the meantime, the commission shall require you to appear in persons at the JSC offices within seven days of service of this matter with a view to recording your statement on the circumstances surrounding this matter.

“Take notice that pursuant to the provisions of sections 46 part VIII of the Judicial Service Act no. 1 of 2011, it’s an offence for any persons to disobey any order made by the commission or a committee,” JSC stated.

On Tuesday, November 16, Sonko posted a video recording of a meeting allegedly between Chitembwe’s brother receiving bribe on behalf his behalf.

The video went viral on social media platforms and finally in the mainstream media.

Sonko, who earlier indicated that he had 149 clips about serious corruption scandals happening in the country, vowed to continue unleashing the recordings despite court orders stopping him from publishing them.

“I have nothing to lose anymore. Even if I never get back into elective politics again, I need to finish this war for the 40 million Kenyans who do not have a chance at justice. If someone like me, someone with means can be cheated out of justice, what chance do the poor Kenyans have?

“We have recordings that go back for months on how justice within the courts goes to the highest bidder. If you give a Judge Ksh100 million, it is the one who will give Ksh200 million that will win the case. It has nothing to do with justice,” Sonko stated.
