Seven years after former Deputy Chief Justice, Nancy Baraza was removed from office, she has blamed the judiciary for her exit.
In an interview conducted by KTN’s Tony Gachoka, Ms Baraza revealed that she was treated unfairly after she allegedly pinched Rebecca Kerubo’s nose, who was a guard at a shopping mall.
“I think what happened was unfortunate, but think it attracted forces from outside. I think other forces joined in the war and that is why I say I was not treated fairly,” she stated.
The ex-DCJ, who has since apologised to Ms Kerubo descibed the incident as ‘a security lapse’ on her side.Â
However, she stated that a court of appeal judge put stories on the media, that would later see her out of her job.
“It became a media feast for my own colleagues from Judiciary, and these are not lies because whoever they were calling I was able to get the information,” she revealed.
She further gave an example of a judge who would call somebody from the media and tell them to keep the story rolloing until she exits her seat.
Ms Baraza, who is now a senior lecturer at the University of Nairobi added that other members of the judiciary have gotten away with doing worse things.
She argued that if the same standards that were applied on her were used against all state officers, most would be in jail.
