Interviews to fill the vacant position of Supreme Court judge start today.
The position fell vacant following the retirement of Justice Jackton Ojwang in February, 2020.
The interviews were postponed following a High Court order which was overturned by the Court of Appeal.
Seven candidates are on the shortlist. These are Yano Alice, Justice William Ouko, Justice Said Chitembwe, Justice Marete Njagi, and Justice Nduma Nderi, all who featured in the recently-concluded Chief Justice interviews. Others are lawyer Dr Nyaberi Lumumba, and High Court Judge Sergon Joseph. Justice Martha Koome, CJ-designate, had also been shortlisted.
Justices Chitembwe and Marete will be the first interviewees today. Justice Nduma and Dr. Nyaberi will be interviewed on Tuesday, February 4, while Ms. Yano, Justice Ouko, and Justice Sergon Joseph will be interviewed on Wednesday.
Supreme Court Judge Ojwang left office after attaining the mandatory retirement age of 70.
The interviews will be live on all our Social Media platforms.
