Court of Appeal Judge Mohammed Warsame is in trouble following revelations of a petitioner,which have been submitted to the Judicial Service Commission.The petitioner has made outrageous claims  on the judge which go against the judicial code of conduct.

The petitioner, Wardere Mohamud Bule, has accused Justice Warsame of  alleged bribery and breach of judicial code of conduct.He  then makes further  claims that Justice Warsame received bribery money from lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi for onward transmission to his colleagues in the Court of Appeal to influence outcome of the cases before the court.

Justice Warsame joins a list of judges who have a number of petitions seeking their removal and investigations into their conduct  before the JSC. Other judges whom the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has received a petition seeking their removal  are  four Supreme Court judges Justices Mohammed Ibrahim, Jackton Ojwang, Smokin Wanjala and Njoki Ndung’u.

Last year, Parliament was keen on blocking Warsame’s appointment to the JSC. According to the MPs, the judge needed to appear before the vetting committee and not bypass the set out procedure.
