Rao wants JSC to stop paying sacked judges

15 September 2014, 15:43 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - The Judges and Magistrates Vetting Board chairman, Sharad Rao, is dissatisfied with JSC's move to continue paying judges who were found unsuitable to serve in the Judiciary.

While addressing media at a Nyeri hotel, Rao said vetting process of judicial officers was fair and deserves full public support.

He however emphasized that the matter of the salaries to the sacked officers was beyond their mandate and there was nothing the Board could do about it.

The Board relieved 13 senior judicial officers of their duties after finding them unsuitable for service because of their unethical behaviour, corruption, laziness and ignorance of the law among other reasons.

The chairman added that the second phase of vetting process would be to analyze the service and conduct of 300 magistrates.

The process however got a hitch after a High Court judge issued an injunction after some of the officers set to be vetted moved to court seeking the process to be stopped.

Nevertheless, Rao lauded the Board’s job stating that it has led to an improved court environment and reduced corruption in the Judiciary.

The chairman spoke during a sensitization workshop for journalists and Community Service Organizations organized by the Board.
