“This is a trip that was planned long before the general elections,” said the judge as quoted by the Daily Nation.

Justice Wanjala was one of the four judges, who concurred with the petitioner’s grievances to annul President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win of August 8th.

He was however conspicuously missing on September 20 when the other judges delivered their full judgement.

Regarding his absence,Chief Justice David Maraga said: “We are five and the case was heard by six judges…Wanjala had to travel out of the country but he has signed the majority judgement.

CJ Maraga’s explanation did not appease a critical section of Kenyans, who have been demanding to know why Justice Wanjala could not postpone his personal issues for the all important national duty.
