The ongoing search for the country's next chief justice is set to continue for the next few days as the JSC panel vets ten candidates who applied to take over from Chief Justice David Maraga Whose term came to an end in January.
Those shortlisted are: Justice Juma Chitembwe, Prof Patricia Mbote, Justice Martha Koome, Justice Marete Njagi, Philip Murgor, Justice Nduma Nderi, Fred Ngatia, Justice William Ouko, Dr. Wekesa Moni, and Alice Yano.
Earlier today, Veteran judge Juma Chitembwe made his maiden appearance in front of the panel that is led by JSC vice-chair Olive Mugenda, Justice Mohammed Abdullahi Warsame, and Lady Justice Philomena Mwilu.
During his appearance, Chitembwe was asked the one problem he had seen in the Judiciary system in Kenya that he will look to change and how he will do it.
In his response, Chitembwe argued that he had not seen any problem in the Judiciary and thus he won't be doing anything different. His response is no doubt a classical rookie mistake when it comes to job interviews. An interviewee is expected to solve a problem in his new job.
Former Kakamega Senator Boniface Khalwale was quick to note that the good judge may have just blown away his chances of taking over from Maraga.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
