CJ removes Warsame from vetting case

What you need to know:

  • The lawyers representing the board and LSK were asked to file formal applications seeking the disqualification of Justice Warsame.
  • LSK filed its application last Friday, but it has now been overtaken by events because the CJ has decided to form a new bench.
  • Dr Mutunga has also gone by the recommendations of the three judges to expand the bench to five.

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga has bowed to pressure from lawyers and rescinded his decision to appoint a judge who has not been vetted to handle cases challenging the mandate of the Judges and Magistrates Vetting Board.
