In a Parliament sitting, debated a report by the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee, which earlier recommended her approval of becoming the chief justice.
The committee chaired by Kangema mp Muturi Kigano in its report to the house said that Koome has all required qualifications and experience in the Judiciary, which qualifies her for become chief justice.
It dismissed an objection by Law Society of Kenya president Nelson Havi and Mr Khaifa for the merit.
" The JSC exercise diligently conducted vetting bodies for confidential reports on the candidates. The commission conducted the Kenya Revenue Authority, Higher Loans Board, Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission, Directorate of Criminal Investigation, Law Society of Kenya, Advocates Complaint Commission and National Intelligent Service." The report adds.
" Lady justice Martha Koome, Kenyans are watching you" was a conclusive statement as members of Parliament stood to support the motion.
