Kenya's Blind Judge Sworn in Today

The president of the republic of Kenya, H.E Uhuru Kenyatta apointed 34 judges instead of 40, an appointment that has brought about many questions as to why the president has not appointed the remaining six judges. Lawyers demanded and pressed the president to appoint the six remaining judges.

This appointment is from a list of forty one judges which was forwarded to the president back in 2019 during the tenure of the former CJ Maraga.

The 34 gazetted judges have taken oath of office at state house. Among the 34 is Dr Imaana Laibuta. He will serve with other ten judges in the court of appeal.

Dr Laibuta lost his sight at the age of 22 while in first year at the university. It was due to a medical accident as he was undergoingg treatment on which there was chloroquine poisoning. Dr Laibuta was a senior law lecturer at the University of Embu.
