Supreme Court judge Njoki Ndung’u has sued businessman Jacob Juma for defamation over claims she received money alongside Justice Philip Tunoi.

The judge, through her lawyer Andrew Musangi on Thursday, gave Juma 48 hours to retract his tweets through paid up adverts in three newspapers and post the same on Twitter.

Juma in five tweets posted on January 30, said Ndung’u and Deputy Chief Justice Kalpana Rawal “had been paid separately outside the $2 million bribe.”

He said the two judges were paid without the involvement of Tunoi and instead “dealt directly with the bribe giver”.

Tunoi has been accused of receiving a Sh200 million bribe against Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero.
