Court extends orders barring replacement of Kalpana as Deputy CJ

By Samuel Musita

Deputy Chief Justice Kalpana Rawal will remain in office a little longer after the High Court extended orders barring the Judicial Service Commission from recruiting her successor.

The five judge bench led by Justice Richard Mwongo expected to deliver its judgment today instead extended its decision until December 11th.

Justice Richard Mwongo directed the Judicial Service Commission should not continue with the process to replace Justice Rawal until they deliver a judgment in which the Deputy CJ is challenging the JSC’s move to retire her at the age of 70.

The Judges also postponed their decision in a similar case in which Supreme court Judge Philip Tunoi and High Court judge David Onyancha are contesting their retirement age. JSC had begun the process of replacing Justice Rawal in September, a decision  the Deputy CJ moved to court to challenge.
