A former magistrate sacked over allegations of financial impropriety at her station has sued the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) for the dismissal.
Beatrice Nyambune Mosiria wants the JSC to quash her February 9 dismissal letter and have her reinstated.

Through lawyer Tom K’Opere, Ms Mosiria accuses the JSC of unfairly sacking her.

She was accused of withdrawing Sh541,000 from an account belonging to the Kapsabet Law Courts between July 2014 and April 1, 2015 “contrary to government financial regulations as well as procedures”.

She has also been accused of receiving subsistence allowance of Sh333,000 for attending meetings in Nairobi yet the payments vouchers are not supported by invitations to the meetings.

“JSC failed to follow its Act as a consequence of which Ms Mosiria has suffered gross injustice, unprocedural and unconstitutional dismissal from her employer whom she served with dedication for over 14 years,” said Mr K’Opere.
