President Uhuru Kenyatta nominee to Judicial Service Commission (JSC) Professor Olive Mugenda.

Former Kenyatta University VC Professor Olive Mugenda has told off critics that she is very qualified for the JSC member position.

Prof Mugenda while defending her nomination says that she meets all the criteria set out in the constitution.

She has also requested the court to lift conservatory orders issued prohibiting her from taking the oath of office as a member of judicial Service Commission.

The former KU Vice Chancellor further wants the court to dismiss the case filed by Katiba Institute arguing it was brought in bad faith.

On February 21 2018, she appeared before the National Assembly Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs for vetting.

During that session Prof Mugenda says she answered all queries that were raised by the said committee and filed all responses in answer to objections to her appointment that had been raised by Dr. George Lukoye Makokha.

Last week the High Court suspended the swearing in of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s three nominees Prof Olive Mugenda, Felix Koskei, and Patrick Gichohi.

Katiba Institute says that the nomination was not transparent and there was no public participation and as such should not stand.
