Willy Mutunga said : "There was a robust dialogue between JSC and the 38 judges of superior courts who were affected by this dispute and at some point, I remember JSC suggested that Tunoi be paid his dues for the four years he was contesting to remain in office so that he retires at 70,” Mutunga said. The former Chief Justice was also questioned on why JSC decided to warn Justices Mohamed Ibrahim, Jackton Ojwang and Njoki Ndung’u of their conduct in 2015. He replied that JSC members felt the judges had disrespected the commission by sending a letter on September 22, 2015 seeking JSC's intervention to address a contentious issue of quorum hitch at the apex court. According to Mutunga, JSC felt the quorum issue in the letter was a red herring meant to divert attention from the question whether judges should retire at 70 or 74. He said the problem with the letter emerged in a paragraph that cautioned JSC not to interfere with Supreme Court operations. Justice Mutunga said the paragraph must have been written by Supreme Court judge Jackton Ojwang, because the other judges lacked the vigor to express themselves in such sublime writing. “That last paragraph was penned by Prof Ojwang. I know his language and I saw the paragraph as a threat," "When you relate with fellow judges, you get to know about their demeanor and their body language and their expression. If it was Justice Njoki, it would not be such language" External link

Willy Mutunga said : "There was a robust dialogue between JSC and the 38 judges of superior courts who were affected by this dispute and at some point, I remember JSC suggested that Tunoi be paid his dues for the four years he was contesting to remain in office so that he retires at 70,” Mutunga said. The former Chief Justice was also questioned on why JSC decided to warn Justices Mohamed Ibrahim, Jackton Ojwang and Njoki Ndung’u of their conduct in 2015. He replied that JSC members felt the judges had disrespected the commission by sending a letter on September 22, 2015 seeking JSC's intervention to address a contentious issue of quorum hitch at the apex court. According to Mutunga, JSC felt the quorum issue in the letter was a red herring meant to divert attention from the question whether judges should retire at 70 or 74. He said the problem with the letter emerged in a paragraph that cautioned JSC not to interfere with Supreme Court operations. Justice Mutunga said the paragraph must have been written by Supreme Court judge Jackton Ojwang, because the other judges lacked the vigor to express themselves in such sublime writing. “That last paragraph was penned by Prof Ojwang. I know his language and I saw the paragraph as a threat," "When you relate with fellow judges, you get to know about their demeanor and their body language and their expression.
