Nyeri - The judiciary staff in Nyeri region has expressed their support towards the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) move to sack Glydys Shollei.
During a press conference held at the Nyeri law courts, national vice chairperson Williams Wahome said they are in support of Chief Justice Willy Mutunga as the commissions chairman.
“We are in full support of the Chief Justice as the Chairman of the Judicial Service Commission and in its entirety. It should be noted that the JSC and the Judicial Transformation Secretariat are the true pillars of judicial reforms,” he said.
The members under the banner of Kenya Judiciary Staff Association stated that they believe there are sufficient reasons leading to Shollei’s sacking.
They said they would not wish to see the transformations made by the judiciary watered down,noting that they have embraced transformation with a view to delivering excellent services.
The members however vowed to remain true to the ideals of the constitution assuring Kenyans that they will continue to deliver excellent services regardless of any outcome.
“We will jealously guard the judiciary transformation process and we cannot sit down to see the transformation efforts made being watered down,” Wahome added.
He noted that the judiciary is an independent arm of the government and should be left to conduct its business without interference.
Shollei was sacked last Friday after two months of investigations over financial misappropriation. The JSC accused her of incompetence, misbehavior, violation of prescribed code of conduct for judicial officers, violation of chapter 6 and Article 32 of the constitution of Kenya and insubordination.
Shollei has however denied the allegations saying that she is going to fight against her dismissal and welcomed the Ethics and Anticorruption Commission to investigate the matter.
