The Judiciary is one of the government that is supposed to be independent of the executive as per the laws laid out in the constitution that was promulgated in 2010 in the country.
The Judiciary, for a long time, had been a captive of the state and thus used for nefarious activities to subjugate Kenyans but with the advent of the new constitution, a change was witnessed.
The Judicial Service Commision is conducting interviews for the six court of appeal judges who are set to be sworn in after the interviews are completed as per the latest reports.
Renown lawyer and Former Chairman of the Senior Council Committee of the Law Society of Kenya, Ahmednasir Abdulahi has called on the interviews to be stopped immediately by the Judicial Service Commision.
The Former Chairman of the Senior Council Committee of the Law Society of Kenya, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, has said that the interviews being conducted are a sham and fake and therefore should not go on.
He insists that the process does not meet the mandatory test of the Article 10 of the 2010 constitution of Kenya in his tweet this morning.
Here is his full statement, "As the current and immediate former Chairman of the Senior Council Committee belonging to the Law Society of Kenya, I thus call upon the Judicial Service Commission to stop forthwith with the fake, sham as well as illegitimate interviews that the Commission is conducting for the 6 advertised positions of the Court of Appeal."
