The once reputed political analyst Prof Mutahi Ngunyi has said Chief Justice David Maraga should be charged with treason.
Ngunyi made the above remarks after Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu withdrew a petition before the JSC seeking to evict CJ Maraga out of his office.
The Nyeri Town MP made the move days after the Supreme Court annulled President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win in the August 8 election.
With over 444 retweets, 200 comments and 1100 likes, the controversial professor received negative feedback from his followers.
“Mr. Fake Professor, Sir; please explain to us where this beast called “high treason” is found in our laws before you lay the charges,” Miguna Miguna said.

You have lost relevance. The tunes you play now are no longer ‘music to our ears’. You are part of the problems we face today…

Mr Ngunjiri decided not to pursue the petition further after President Kenyatta asked him to withdraw.
“I understand your pain and action but we have an election to win,” Uhuru said.
“I stand by the grievances in the #MaragaPetition but due to the current political environment I will not pursue it, for now,” Ngunjiri said in a tweet on Friday.
