The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has forwarded 20 names to President William Ruto for appointment as High Court Judges.

Chief Justice Martha Koome, Chairperson of the JSC, said the panel arrived at the list following interviews conducted between April 3 and May 3 this year.

JSC noted that the application attracted 305 applications and shortlisted 100 candidates for review.

The transmission of names comes at a time the Judiciary is seeking to enhance service delivery with the recruitment of additional personnel.

President Ruto had pledged, on January 20, to scale up the efficiency of the Judiciary through the appointment of extra judges in the appellate and high courts of Kenya.

He made the commitment during an inaugural Heads of Arms Summit attended by National Assembly and Senate Speakers as well as the Chief Justice.
