"Congratulations @CEOCOG Jacqueline for a well deserved appointment as a judge. You have done Kenyans and @KenyaGovernors proud," Ongwae said.

They will serve in the Court of Appeal, Environment and Lands Court, and the Employment and Labour Relations Court.

Uhuru rejected names of the six judges saying that integrity issues had been detailed by the National Intelligence Service and other security agencies against them.
