Court stops retirement of Judges Tunoi, Onyancha

13 January 2016, 20:58

Nairobi - The Appeals Court has stopped the retirement of Judges faced with retirement until consideration of a different case is completed.

The Daily Nation reports that judges Philip Tunoi of the Supreme Court and David Onyancha of the High Court have got a temporary reprieve after the Court stopped their retirement as it seeks consideration on a different case seeking to stop their retirement.

Appeals Court Judges GBM Kariuki, Patrick Kiage, William Ouko, James Odek and Jamila Mohammed issued the orders barring the Judicial Service Commission JSC to retire them until their appeal is determined.

The judges are seeking to revoke an order that sees them retire at the age of 70. They state that they want to be retired at age 74 in accordance with the old Constitution which they were appointed with.

" It is hereby ordered through consent by all parties that the commission shall not issue retirement notices to Justices Tunoi and Onyancha pending the hearing and determination of the appeal," the judges were quoted as saying in the report.

Deputy Chief Justice Kalpana Rawal is also seeking such orders but in a report on The Standard, her tenure will not be extended past her January 16 retirement date when she officially turns 70.
