Jubilee and NASA Supporters Clash Outside Supreme Court
National Super Alliance (NASA) supporters on Tuesday evening clashed with the Jubilee team that had been holding demonstrations outside the Supreme Court.
The fracas resulted in chaos causing businesses along City Hall to close down.
Police are reported to have fired teargas canisters to disperse the rowdy groups that were picketing outside the Supreme Court.
Earlier in the day, a group of Jubilee supporters demonstrated ahead of the release of the full verdict of the petition filed by NASA leader Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka.
The group of individuals was protesting over the Supreme Court decision that annulled President Uhuru Kenyatta's win.
Addressing the media outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday afternoon, CJ Maraga stated that the demonstrations by Jubilee supporters outside the Courts were meant to intimidate the judges.
"If people are tired of an independent Judiciary, call a referendum and disband it all together," he proclaimed.
This comes on a day when damning revelations emerged alleging that two of the four Supreme Court Judges who nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's win were in secret communication with NASA lawyers during the Presidential election petition hearing.
Derrick Malika Ngumu, who is the Executive Director of Angaza Empowerment Network, filed two petitions claiming Deputy Chief Justice (DCJ) Philomena Mwilu and Justice Isaac Lenaola were in contact with lawyers representing the petitioner, Raila Odinga, during the hearing of the case.
