JSC has already picked the new CJ and DCJ, ongoing recruitment a mere formality

11 July 2016, 15:56 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - As the process to recruit Kenya's next chief justice and deputy chief justice kicks off, there is no doubt that the government, civil society groups and opposition will be rooting for their candidates of choice.

However, reports are now emerging that the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) and the government have already conspired and agreed to pick a pro-government candidate to fill up the posts.

A Nakuru-based lawyer, Harrison Mwangi alleges that the JSC which he claims is pro-government has already settled on candidates and that the interview process will just be a formality.

Speaking Monday in Nakuru town, Mwangi said that majority of the JSC members are government friendly and there is no way they will settle on a candidate who seems to be anti-government.

“The JSC and government already know who will be the Chief Justice and the deputy and the interviews will just be another formality. They both know who will fill the two positions because the government wants to control the Judiciary and it can easily do so because it controls the JSC which is in charge of recruiting judges,” said Mwangi.

The JSC is in the process of recruiting a new Chief Justice and deputy Chief Justice following the retirement of Willy Mutunga and Kalpana Rawal.
