Noting that the appointment and subsequent swearing-in of the judges comes at a unique time, when the nation is gearing towards the general elections, President Kenyatta emphasized the need for the judiciary to play its role effectively.
It is notable that the President once again, snubbed the appointment of six other nominees whose names were submitted to him three years ago by the jsc.
They included justices George Odunga, Aggrey Muchelule, Prof Joel Ngugi and weldon korir, together with chief magistrate evans makori, and high court registrar Judith Omange. Jsc nominated them alongside others, in July 2019. The president’s decision, has made jsc fulfill the statutory establishment of the court of appeal, which is a maximum of 30 judges.
