Raila: Don’t read too much into DCJ Mwilu’s arrest
ODM leader Raila Odinga has for the first time commented on the arrest and prosecution of Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.
Lady Justice Mwilu was arrested on Tuesday and arraigned court the same day on charges of abuse of office and tax evasion.
But Voice of America Swahili, Odinga, who is back in the country from a week-long tour in Germany, urged those reading malice in the DCJ’s arrest not to rush into conclusions.
“If somebody is arrested and charged, there should be enough evidence that will satisfy the public to avoid allegations that the person is being persecuted. I have said that people should be patient. We should wait and see what evidence the Director of Public Prosecution has,” Odinga said.
Mr Odinga also reiterated that he fully supports President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ongoing fight against corruption.
