Hunt for Kenya’s next Chief Justice enters day three
The search for Kenya’s next Chief Justice entered day three on Wednesday.
Justice Martha Koome takes the hot seat as she seeks to become the next President of the Supreme Court and head of the Judiciary.
The exercise that commenced Monday will seek to replace Justice David Maraga, who retired early this year.
Justice Koome holds a Bachelor and Master of Laws degrees from the University of Nairobi. She was admitted as an advocate of the High Court in 1987 after which she practised as a litigator in a firm.
Shortly thereafter, she established a company which carried her name as founding partner.
While in private practice, she was heavily engaged in civil society work, focusing on human rights advocacy and especially on the rights of children and women.
