KENYA JUDICIAL SERVICE COMMISSION – PRESS RELEASE INTERVIEWS FOR THE ADVERTISED POSITIONS OF JUDGES


THE JUDICIAL SERVICE COMMISSION – PRESS RELEASE INTERVIEWS FOR THE ADVERTISED POSITIONS OF JUDGES OF:

1) THE COURT OF APPEAL (6 POSTS) AND

2) HIGH COURT (20 POSTS)

On 24th March, 2022 the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) advertised six (6) posts of Judges of the Court of Appeal and twenty (20) posts of Judges of the High Court.

Interviews of the shortlisted candidates were scheduled to commence on 20th June, 2022.
On 3rd June, 2022 conservatory orders were issued suspending the selection process pending the hearing and determination of the petition in Nairobi High Court Constitutional Petition No. E128 of 2022 (Katiba Institute vs Judicial Service Commission, The Chief Justice of the Republic of Kenya, the Attorney General and 3 Others).

Consequently, an appeal was lodged, and the Court of Appeal in Nairobi Court of Appeal Civil Appeal No. E337/2022 (Judicial Service Commission and Chief Justice vs Katiba Institute and 4 others) stayed the High Court orders thereby allowing the selection process to proceed.

As a result of the above, it is notified for general information that the JSC will release the revised interview schedule on 21st June, 2022 and the same will be posted on JSC website: www.jsc.go.ke
