14 June 2012, 08:40
Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that a magistrate on Wednesday admitted that the “harassment” of judges during vetting because of past judgments is a challenge to the independence of judicial officers.
Emily Ominde, a representative of magistrates in the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), said there were rumours that some judges were afraid of making judgments unfavourable to powerful people for fear it would hurt them during vetting.
Ominde was speaking during the interview of Onesmus Ndubuthi Makau, an advocate based in Machakos, for the position of judge in Industrial and Labour Relations Court.
