Muchelule is one of the six judges that President Uhuru Kenyatta refused to appoint to the position of Court of Appeal judge.
A report that was published by K24 said that a detectives involved in the arrest had been pursuing a case in which Muchelule is a key suspect for months. “He is a man of interest in a matter that detectives have been pursuing for months now. More shall be communicated with time,”the media house quoted.
The arrests come at a time when the executive and the judiciary have been at loggerheads. The executive, led by President Kenyatta has been lamenting that the judiciary is riddled with corruption. On the other hand, though, the judiciary has been accusing the presidency of attempting to control its operations through intimidation.
