A top security organ is set to meet today to discuss the saga surrounding the threats issued to the Chief Justice and judicial officers. The National Security Advisory Committee (NSAC) that is chaired by head of Civil Service Francis Kimemia will meet at the Office of the President to discuss the issue.
Kimemia summoned the meeting last night after also criticized for his alleged harassment of CJ Willy Mutunga by requiring that Mutunga and other judicial officers be cleared by his office before traveling out of the country.
This has caused furore from a cross section of Kenyans who have demanded that the judiciary be left to operate on their own and independently.
Apart from Kimemia, National Intelligence Service Director General Michael Gichangi, Internal Security Permanent Secretary Mutea Iringo, his Foreign Affairs counterpart Thuita Mwangi and Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo sit on the committee.
