Chief Justice David Maraga has been added on the list of leaders entitled to  special clearance on the roads.

This is following public outcry on why the third arm of government was not included on the list of VIPs released on Wednesday by Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai.

In the updated statement on Thursday, the IG remained silent on why the CJ missed on the VIP list released on Wednesday evening.

Also included in the new list is Cabinet Secretary Finance, the Attorney General and Majority Leader Senate.
