Judges defy CJ's orders to relocate to Elgon House

19 September 2013, 15:43 Robert Etakwa

Nairobi - Even before the dust settles on Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Gladys Shollei's showdown with the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) over allegations if impropriety, Kenyans may soon be treated to yet another showdown from the corridors of justice.

This time round, appellate judges have defied directives from their boss Chief Justice Dr. Willy Mutunga to relocate to their temporary work stations at Elgon house in Upper Hill as their current offices at the Supreme Court undergo renovation.

The judges vowed to stay put citing health concerns. They argue that the telecommunications mast erected near the building will expose them to cancer, sentiments shared by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK).

The Judiciary support staff have already vacated to the new building, but judges are adamant that they will only move when they are assured of their safety.

LSK has hired experts to re-assess the building after similar exercises were carried out by CCK and the radiation protection board.

LSK has since urged lawyers to stay away from the building until a complete audit is carried out to determine the radiations level.
