Deputy Chief Justice, Kalpana Rawal

Principal Judge Justice Richard Mwongo confirmed Wednesday that a five judge bench has been constituted to handle Deputy Chief Justice Kalpana Rawal case.

The bench constituted by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga consists of Justice Richard Mwongo, Weldon Korir, Lady Justice Hedwig Ong’udi, Christine Meoli and Charles Kariuki.

Justice Rawal had earlier  moved to court to stop the Judicial Service Commission JSC from retiring her and recruiting another candidate in her position.

Lawyers representing the Deputy Chief Justice are George Oraro and Kioko Kilukumi.

The Deputy CJ argued that she is supposed to retire at the age of 74 years and not 70 as stipulated in the Constitution.

The case will be heard on 30th September, 2015.
