On this day marks the second day for the search of the next Chief Justice of Kenya and on the seat was Professor Patricia Kameri Mbote. She seeks to become the first ever woman to become Chief Justice.
Under her experience as the Professor she argued that one of the challenges she has faced is being treated in a way that is less demanding of people. She explained of terrible encounter she had with Nairobi University goons who undermined her authority when she was the Dean at the University.
When tasked to answer whether she was in the committee of discussing BBI or how she was engaged in the document. She categorically said, “I came to BBI as a scholar, I did not participate in writing of the document.” She argued she was only proofreading the document.
She continued to explain that she entered into BBI to address how it affects certain constitutional provisions as a scholar, and is currently advising the parliament on proposed amendments.
As the hot session and grilling continues it’s only a matter of time to see if a woman will lead the front and face of the courts for the first time.
Make sure follow more on the proceedings and more as they unravel. Comment and share on you views on the search for next CJ.
