No deliberations to be made after the conclusions of the ongoing interviews for Supreme Court judge – court orders

Court ruled on Wednesday that the “constitutionality of the ongoing process has been challenge,” therefore, once the interviews are completed, no further deliberations will be made until court’s final verdict.

Justices Wilfrida Okwany and Anthony Mrima gave the orders after petitioners challenged election of Prof. Oliver Mugenda in the panel and the fact that the interviewee’s wealth had not been declared.

Tolphin Nafula, a petitioner argued that the election of Kenyatta University Vice Chancellor, Prof. Olive Mugenda as the interim vice chairperson for JSC turns the current acting Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu to an ordinary member.

Another petitioner wants the ongoing search for Kenya’s Chief justice adjourned until it is confirmed to the country that all the successful applicants have complied with Chapter 6 of the constitution.

In the second petition, one Memba Ocharo wants the interviews adjourned until the nation is informed whether the remaining candidates have complied with Chapter 6 of the Constitution.
