Veteran judge dies

17 March 2015, 11:27 Jayden Kanuri

Nairobi - A Kenyan judge who served at the East African Court of Justice has died at a Nairobi Hospital where he had been undergoing stroke treatment for three months.

Rtd Justice Jackson Mulwa had served in various Kenyan courts before moving to the East African Court.

He also served as Makueni MP between 1969 and 1983, and was the first judge to open the Meru High Court station.

During his tenure as MP, his constituency covered large swathes of present-day Makueni, Kibwezi east and West Constituencies.

Until his death, the judge was the chairman of the board of governors at the Machakos Girl’s High School.

Following his death a dull cloud of grief has engulfed the school, and the larger Makueni constituency as locals and leaders mourned the legal scholar-turned politician.

“Mulwa was not only our chairman but also a fatherly figure to our students,” Machakos Girls’ Principal, Flora Malatya said.

Ukambani leaders also eulogised Mulwa as a hero who fought for the rights of residents and the larger population of Kenyans.

“It is with profound sorrow that I learnt of his death. Makueni expresses condolences to his family,” said Makueni Governor, Kivutha Kibwana through his Facebook page.
