JSC kicks off interviews for new Court of Appeal Judges

The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has commenced interviews for thirty candidates shortlisted for the Court of Appeal judges positions.

Only four candidates will be interviewed per days in sessions led by Chief justice Martha Koome who is also the Chairperson of JSC.

Among those shortlisted for the interviews are 22 serving judges including High Court Judge Lydia Achode, and Justice Alfred Mabeya, the presiding judge of the Commercial division.

Justices Kimaru Luka Kiprotich, Githua Cecilia Wathaiya, Abdi Ali Aroni and Eboso Benard Mweresa will also be interviewed.

Others include; Nduma Mathews Nderi, Ochieng’ Fredrick Andago, Radido Stephen Okiyo Makau Onesmus Ndumbuthi, Mativo John Mutinga, Justice Meoli Christine Wanjiku, Muchemi Florence Nyaguthii, and Musyoka William Musya among others.

Katiba Institute had filed a petition in court seeking to stop CJ Koome from recruiting new judges until the six judges who were left out by President Uhuru Kenyatta are appointed into office.

The court of Appeal, however, ruled that the lobby had failed to demonstrate what prejudice the judges would suffer if the recruitment were to proceed.
