MPs to vet CJ nominee Martha Koome

Lady Justice Martha Koome is this morning set to face MPs at County hall for vetting for the position of Chief Justice.

Koome who is poised to make history by becoming the first female Chief Justice will appear before the National Assembly Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) at 10 am.

The committee chaired by Kangema MP Muturi Kigano will cross-examine the Court of Appeal Judge to assess her suitability to head Judiciary. If approved she will become Kenya’s 15th Chief Justice.

Procedurally, the legislators will scrutinize her documents which include original identity card and academic and professional certificates, testimonials and letters or certificates of clearance from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the Kenya Revenue Authority, the Higher Education Loans Board, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and any Credit Reference Bureaus.

The team has 28 days to report its findings to the House.
