Justice Isaac Lenaola threatens Okiya Omtatah on WhatsApp

Justice Isaac Lenaola, Supreme Court Judge threatens Okiya Omtatah on WhatsApp after the presidential petition verdict.

Busia Senator Okiya Omtatah claims that one of the Supreme Court Judges, Justice Isaac Lenaola, threatened him on Whatsapp after Raila’s presidential election petition.

Omatatah claimed that justice Lenaola, who was a member of the six-judge bench hearing the Presidential petition regarding the August elections, had threatened him on social media for asserting that the judges were biased. 

Omatatah claimed that justice Lenaola, who was a member of the six-judge bench hearing the Presidential petition regarding the August elections, had threatened him on social media for asserting that the judges were biased. 

The renowned activist maintains that were it possible, he would still challenge the 2022 presidential election but before a different bench of judges.

He vowed to stand firm despite the threat adding that he would not take the threat lying down but would pursue the matter to ensure justice prevails.

“I doubt if I lost the case…they said they dismissed it. It doesn’t mean I lost it, it means they ran away from it. I don’t regret it, I would do it again but would want a different bench of judges,” he said.

“Even one of the judges we are fighting right now…a Supreme Court Judge threatened me on WhatsApp. Justice Lenaola threatened me…he said twende kazi na tutaenda kazi.”

“…Especially coming from a judge of the Supreme Court, I have litigated before you, and you come and threaten me, you don’t get away with it,” Omtatah asserted.

He added: “That is why I say I don’t think my case was addressed, it was dismissed yes, but I don’t think it was addressed.”

Omtatah maintains that his case neither of the presidential candidates achieved the 50 percent plus 1 threshold was unfairly dismissed even though he had agreed with the court ruling and moved on.
