Judicial appointments raise questions

20 May 2013, 18:16 Steve Wambugu

The East Africa Law Society (EALS) president Aggry Mwamu has questioned the procedure used by Judicial Service Commission to hire new judges.

Mwamu told the Judicial Service Commission to come out clear and explain how they came up with the list of the hired judges.

“We wish to know how the Judicial Service Commission arrived at these names,” he said.

The EALS president also accused the commission tasked with employment of human resources into the judicial system of ignoring integrity issues during the selection process.

Mwamu noted that some of the selected candidates have questionable issues of good conduct and integrity attached to their names.

“Some of the hired judges are questionable and we feel they are not fit to hold such positions,” he added.

Mwamu who was speaking in Nakuru on Saturday after a two-day workshop of Law Society of Kenya (LSK) on procurement laws and practices questioned the operations of the commission happening in the wake of judicial reforms.

He further said that such steps could result to the weakening of the arm of judiciary and further widening the public gap on trust and faith in the system.
