14th Chief Justice of Kenya

Maraga is a Kenyan lawyer and jurist. He is currently serving as the 14th Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court of Kenya. Along with three other judges, Maraga made history by annulling the 2017 Presidential election because of evidence of hacking submitted by one of the candidates. Supporters of President Kenyatta, who was the favourite to win, were disappointed with the ruling. However, others praised it as illustrating a strong stance against corruption and restoring the independence of the judiciary.
