Over the past years since Kenya’s independence, the judiciary has been a male dominated sector.
However the rising ranks of female leadership has been slowly outshining the male leadership in this prestigious institution in Kenya.
It is not a secret that the judiciary is now being led by women. take a look at this list; the chief justice Martha Koome her deputy Philomena Mwilu, Olive Mugenda-vice chair judicial service commission (JSC), Wanjiru Karanja-acting President Court of Appeal, Lydia Achode -Principal Judge High Court, Maureen Onyango-Principal Judge Employment & Labour Relations Court ( ELRC), Anne Amandi -Judiciary Chief Registrar, Judy Omange-Registrar High Court, Esther Nyaiyaki-Registrar Supreme Court, Frida Mokaya – Registrar JSC.
With Martha Koome rising to the helm of the Judiciary, Kenyan’s are eager to see how the judiciary will operate.
A lot of challenges are waiting for the new chief justice as she takes the oath of office.
during vetting, members of parliament put the chief justice to task over the independence of the judiciary.
it is now a wait and see situation on how the judiciary will run and operate. with a full operated female judiciary we expect changes.
in her own words the chief justice has declared war on corruption and rogue judges. they have it coming.
