Senior Counsel Lawyer Philip Murgor is on the spot over allegations of leading a corruption network in the judiciary, especially at the Court of Appeal where his wife is a judge.
He has been accused of using the position of his wife Justice Agnes Murgor who is a Judge to influence big cases before the appellate court.
According to insiders in the judiciary, Murgor has been using the position of his wife at the Court of Appeal to influence cases by using corrupt Judges and lawyers with an interest in prominent cases.
The senior counsel was adversely mentioned as an agent of the corrupt network within the Judiciary by suspended High Court Judge, Said Juma Chitembwe.
The former DPP is said to be the henchman for corrupt Judges and lawyers and he’s said to be always ready to assist with cash for justice before the courts.
Murgor is among the top lawyers who applied for the post of Chief Justice to succeed David Maraga but he was disqualified over his past dirty deals.
The former DPP was also recently sacked by the current DPP Noordin Haji as a State Prosecutor after members of the public filed petitions over his past conduct.
Murgor is currently handling the murder case of Tob Cohen and he has been accused of forging the late Cohen’s will in favor of the widow Sarah Wairimu despite the late tycoon leaving behind three Wills.
