Kenyan Judge appointed to COMESA Court of Justice

02 April 2015, 08:24 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Lady Justice Mary Kasango has been appointed as a judge of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Court of Justice for a period of five year terms.

Kasango was among 11 other judges across the COMESA region who were sworn in to the Appellate and First Instance Divisions of the Court of Justice during the 18th Summit of the COMESA Authority, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Attorney General Githu Muigai congratulated Kasango on her appointment and expressed his confidence in her to raise the country’s banner through fair discharge of the assigned judicial duties at the COMESA court.

The COMESA court’s Judges ensure that the agreed upon laws are not interpreted and applied differently in each Member State.

This ensures that the regional shared legal system remains a Common Market system and that it is always identical.

The Court has also jurisdiction to hear disputes to which Member States, the Secretary General, residents of Member States including individuals and legal persons, may be parties.

The Court was established in 1994 under Article 7 of the COMESA Treaty as one of the organs of COMESA and its headquarters is in Khartoum, Sudan.
