Vetting board reinstates judges
Supreme Court Judge Mohammed Ibrahim and Court of Appeal Judge Roselyn Nyambuye have been reinstated after they appealed an earlier ruling that found them unfit to hold office. The Judges and Magistrates vetting board has ruled that Justice Mohammed Ibrahim and Justice Roselyn Nyambuye are to be vetted afresh.
Three Court of Appeal judges have also received a reprieve from the Vetting Board. Justice Martha Koome, Justice Kalpana Rawal and Justice David Maraga are suitable to remain in office, the board has said. The vetting board has however rejected an appeal to reinstate High Court Judge Jean Gachehe and Justice Joyce Khaminwa.
Justice Ibrahim and Justice Nyambuye were among six Judges who lost their positions after the board found them unsuitable in July. The board said that Justice Ibrahim had over 264 pending cases, some dating back to 2004. The board sacked Justice Nyambuye for what it termed as poor management practices and inefficiency citing one incident where she delivered a three hundred page judgement.
