JSC appoints Anne Atieno as Chief Registrar

11 January 2014, 16:29 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Anne Atieno Amadi has been appointed as the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary.

According to a press statement signed by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga, the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) held a meeting on 11th January, 2014 and appointed Atieno to replace Gladys Shollei who was sacked last year.

JSC decided to sack Shollei after finding her guilty of financial impropriety. The CJ said they had investigated the allegations for two months and found her guilty.

However, Shollei has exonerated herself from the alleged fraud in the JSC, saying no money was lost during her tenure.

Shollei accused some commissioners within the commission of plotting her removal from office.

Nairobi County Women Representative, Rachael Shebesh, said Shollei’s sacking was another case of discrimination against strong-willed women.

Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) chairperson, Ruth Aura, also protested the sack saying women holding key positions in public offices are being haunted.
