In spite of barrister Ahmednasir’s appeal, Jacob Juma has defiantly declined to render apology to Supreme Court judge Njoki Ndung’u for asserting she collected money alongside Justice Philip Tunoi.
The Businessman tweeted that Ndung’u and Deputy Chief Justice Kalpana Rawal “had been paid separately outside the $2 million bribe” on January 30.
According to the Juma, two judges were paid but not through Tunoi. He said the two judges have no connection with Tunoi as they had separate dealing with the bribe giver. Thus, collected bribe directly.
Juma stated on Friday:
Pablo Escobar processed and sold drugs but never used them because you do not get high on your supply. Let Njoki Ndungu take notice.
I hereby demand that Njoki Ndung’u apologise to me or sue me. She has no face, name ‘or otherwise’ worth being character assassinated [sic].”
The businessman told Ndung’u to chargethe deponent since the affidavit is public” and also for being among the only two women in the Supreme Court.
Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi had pleaded with the business mogul to apologise to the judge and move on like normal people.
According to him:
Apologise to the judge and move on like the real man you are.
In the alleged tweet, Juma wrote that Justice Tunoi collected a Sh200 million bribe to judge in favour of a petition by Ferdinand Waititu against Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero in August 2014.
Waititu is now Kabete Member of Parliament.
Ndung’u had charged Juma for character assassination and issued a day ultimatum to take down his tweets through paid adverts in three newspapers, and also posted the same on Twitter.
The lawyer, disputed the original amount of money involved in Supreme Court bribery saga, claiming that the actual sum involved was Sh300 million and not Sh200 million as alleged earlier.
