Accompanied by his wife, Chief Justice David Maraga on Thursday voted in Nyamira County. “I have finished my mission and I can now leave,” the Daily Nation newspaper quoted Maraga as saying.

The driver for the court’s deputy chief justice was shot and wounded Tuesday evening, raising fears about intimidation of the judiciary.
