Mutunga's Deputy Rawal retired by Judiciary

05 September 2015, 16:20 Willim Korir

Nairobi - Deputy Chief Justice Kalpana Rawal will retire at the end of 2015, The Judiciary has announced.

Rawal has hit 70 years and will be retired at the end of the year.

Her position will be advertised in the coming weeks.

However, Judiciary Registrar Anne Amadi said that the move was taken at a time when there was uncertainty over the retirement age for judges, which has been said to be 74 years.

" There is currently n issue as to the current age of retirement which has been contested in court by some judges and the case is ongoing," she said in a statement Saturday.

" The JSC also deliberated on the issue of judges who have since attained the retirement age of 70 years and upon being served with the retirement notice last year, they moved to court and obtained conservatory orders restraining the Commission from removing or retiring them from office.

" It is a matter of public concern that the said judges continue to sit and render decisions, a matter that has caused anxiety to the general public, litigants, and the JSC. Out of an abundance of caution and in order to forestall any likely Constitutional crisis it was resolved that the respective judges will not hear and participate in any further proceedings until the case that they filed is heard and determined,” Amadi explained in the press statement.

The move to retire Rawal will be the first in a seemingly set  number of changes, with CJ Willy Mutunga also set to move on from the Judiciary next year.
