Vetting board re-instates 13 judges, culls 4

23 January 2015, 18:30 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Judges and Magistrates vetting board has re-instated 13 judges who were declared unfit to serve and kicked out 4 others.

The Board announced Friday that it had after thorough research and soul searching, as well as considering input, decided that the 13 are fine to resume office.

The 13 are Douglas Musa Machage, George Sagero Rachami, Sogomo Gathogo, Tanchu Timothy ole Tina, Ruth Bertha Maloba, Phylis Lusiah Shinyada, Celesa Okore Asis, Joseph Riitho Ndiruri, Gilbert Kimutai Too, Robinson Onyoni Oigara, Innocent Masiba Toyo, Walter John Onchuru and Isaac Karasi Orenge.

The Board said that the 13 are now fit to resume duty as usual.

4 others though had their fate sealed as they were declared unfit to serve in the judiciary. They are Teresa Muthoni Mwangi, Micheal Odour Kizito, Ireri Anne Irungu and Dennis Abraham Kinaro.

The Board led by chairman Sharad Rao said that the judges and magistrates who have been given a new lease of life have been vetted accordingly and found not to be in contravention of the Judges and Magistrates act after further review.

The review was facilitated by the Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga.

" Were it not for the input of the Supreme Court who facilitated ground for review, these applications might not have bore fruit," Rao said Friday in Nairobi.

The 13 cases will now be forwarded to the Judicial Service Commission JSC for consideration.

This follows a ruling by the Supreme Court that only the JSC is allowed by law to rule on matters of discipline by Judicial officers under law.
