Who Will Be The Next Chief Justice? JSC In Search Of Maraga's Favourable Replacement

The Judicial Service Commission has shortlisted ten candidate for the vacant position of the Chief Justice.

This comes months after David Maraga retired from the position and now the Commission has been tasked to find a replacement for him.

The Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu is currently the serving Chief Justice until someone better comes in to fill the gap, and the process kicked off today Monday 12th April.

The ten candidates cleared to face the Commission include Justice Said Chitembwe, Alice Yano, Professor Wekesa Moni, Prof Patricia Mbote, Justice Martha Koome, Justice Marete, Fred Ngatia, justice Nduma Nderi and Justice Philip Murgor.

The JSC will conduct the interviews for the shortlisted candidates between the dates of 12th April to 23rd April with the panel set to interview one candidate a day.

After the Commission finds the right person the National Assembly will do the approval before the name is handed to the President's office strictly according to the constitution cited in article 166 of the Kenyan Constitution, and then the swearing in will later follow.
