Nairobi - The newly appointed Chief Registrar for the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), Anne Amadi has been sworn in to replace Gladys Shollei.
Addressing the press during her swearing in, Amadi assured that she will discharge duties as mandated, and confirmed that she is not new to the JSC.
"Upon my application for the position of the JSC Chief Registrar, I was fully aware of the scope and challenges in the institution after serving as a magistrate for seven years," stated Amadi.
"Learning from the negative scope in the institution will enable positive results to make the JSC a world class public body to offer judicial services to Kenyans," she added.
Amadi remained optimistic that working collaboratively with the entire JSC staff in ensuring transparency and accountability will see the institution realize remarkable progress.
The Chief Justice, Willy Mutunga warned that the JSC as a constitutional public institution on judicial matters should not be reduced by any one to a private entity.
"All called to serve is just a privilege and not a mandatory hence those in leadership should be devoted and serve with humility and honour for the mutual benefit of the public," said Mutunga.
Mutunga called upon Amadi to ethically carry out her duties as mandated to reinforce and empower the independent judicial institution by ensuring equitable allocation of resources in all its sectors.
"The Chief Registrar should work to terminate any form of corruption especially bribery in the JSC bearing in mind transparency and accountability in distribution of resources in all regions," Mutunga added.
He assured that the JSC will work closely with other arms of government in serving the public.
