Kenyans are currently witnessing the interview of a possible Chief Justice who will take over from Chief Justice David Maraga who retired few months ago. Several people have been interviewed for the job. Kenyans raised questions after all Judges of the supreme court failed to apply for the job despite being favourable to win due to vast experience.
Today on 21st April 2021. Court of appeal president Justice Ouko was interviewed for the job. He was grilled on his previous jobs including how he was a police officer reserve despite being Court registrar at that time. He explained that his work did not involve chasing criminals at the streets or firing bullets, but it was just a way of giving back to the Community by training officers on how to make arrests and how to handle guns. Ajob that he did for 10 years.
Well, Kenyans might wait for a little bit longer after this report from the judiciary. It has been reported that two Judges have ruled that the commission should not deliberate further on the matter after finalising on the interviews on Friday, until petitions in the courts are heard and determined.
