CJ Maraga retires after serving 18 years in the Judiciary. His tenure as Chief Justice was characterised by friction with the Executive. Maraga’s bench nullified President Uhuru’s re-election in 2017. Maraga had also advised the president to dissolve Parliament

Maraga goes down the history as the first judge to overturn a presidential election. On his ruling on the 2017 general election, Maraga stated that the election was not incredible and termed it as null and void.
