The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has been asked to conduct the interview process for the next Chief Justice with integrity.

In an interview with Ghetto Radio news, Constitutional Lawyer Shadrack Juma Wambui says that the judiciary currently needs a CJ with impeccable CV.

Wambui says that they however do not care much if the next CJ comes from the courts or outside.

“The Judicial Service Commission must give Kenyans a Chief Justice who is not corrupt, he or she must be a person with unquestionable integrity he or she must also have a well versed experience as a legal practitioner ..as lawyers we don’t care whether  Chief Justice comes from our courts or outside,” he said.

The interview process kicked off today, with  Milimani High Court based Judge Said Chitembwe appearing first before the JSC panel.

“Maraga’s shoes are big and heavy if Judicial Service Commission picks a Chief Justice who will be used by executive as a puppet then it will be sad,” he added.

Ten candidates are set to be interviewed for the CJ job.
