Battle For The New CJ Takes A Twist After Havi Endorses This Candidate For The Top Job

After a very long time and a tiresome interview process, we are almost there. The country is on the verge of getting a new Chief Justice who will replace the retired David Maraga. All the hard work will now be left for the JSC to decide.

Until now, 9 candidates have already been interviewed with the last candidate facing the panel today. The interviewed are; Chitembwe Juma, Patricia Mbote, Martha Koome, David Marete, Philip Murgor, Nduma Nderi, Fred Ngatia, Ouko William Okello and Moni Wekesa while Ms. Yano Alice Jepkoech is facing the panel today.

That battle for the new CJ has taken a twist after the Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi endorsing Ms. Yano Alice Jepkoech for the top job. According to the LSK President, Ms. Yano Alice Jepkoech is suitable to head the Judiciary because she is a distinguished advocate.

"I wish my good learned friend Ms. Yano Alice Jepkoech the very best in today’s interview for Chief Justice. Alice is a distinguished Advocate who has served the Law Society of Kenya and the Kenyan public diligently. She is suitable to head the Judiciary." Tweeted LSK President Nelson Havi.
