The Supreme Court judges are also accused of gross misconduct as well as breach of the Judicial Code of Conduct and Ethics and Oath of Office.

Removing a judge from office involves setting up a tribunal to investigate the allegations similar to one instituted in 2012 against the then Deputy CJ Nancy Baraza, she was found guilty of misconduct.

In 2012, DCJ Baraza tried to fight the unanimous decision by lodging a complaint at the Supreme Court but later resigned in October citing lack of confidence in the five-judge bench.

In the statement on Wednesday, the JSC noted that they have also received complaints about nine magistrates and five of them were found guilty of gross misconduct.
