LSK fury as courts bar judges' sacking
31 October 2012, 12:09
Nairobi - Lawyers have reacted angrily to a contentious ruling that gave courts power to monitor the vetting of judges and magistrates and also stopped the President from sacking those found unfit for office.
According to the Daily Nation, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) termed the ruling by a five-judge bench unfortunate and a backward step in the efforts to clean up the Judiciary.
LSK chairman Eric Mutua said it set a bad precedent because other judges who will be declared unsuitable to hold office will rush to court for reinstatement.
