The Judicial Service Commission, JSC, has recommended 11 names of judges to the President for appointment as judges of the Court of Appeal.

The 11 are expected to fill the vacant positions and raise the number of appellate judges to 30 from the current 19.

The commission, however, rejected names from the Law Society of Kenya.
