Nairobi – The Judges and Magistrates Vetting Board is
hoping Parliament concludes the Miscellaneous Amendments Bill 2012
which, among other statutes, is seeking to give the board an indefinite
term to allow it to finish its work.
Board Chairman Sharad Rao pointed out that this will give the board
more flexibility to carry out its mandate effectively and allow each
judge to be evaluated thoroughly.
“The vetting of the Court of Appeal judges started on 23rd February.
Three months from the start of vetting, ended on 23rd May 2012,” he
explained, saying their mandate expired on Wednesday last week.
