Twice unlucky! JSC rejects MAKAU MUTUA again and picks a staunch SDA as next CJ00:00
... early retirement in June 2016.
The celebrated Law Professor was first rejected by JSC during the short listing of candidates due to his controversial tweets in which he refused to recognize Uhuru Kenyatta as the duly elected President of Kenya and vowed never to call him one.
However, his name was returned to the list of those interviewed for the CJ job following a successful appeal by a section of other stakeholders in the Judiciary.
Mutua was deemed the most qualified of all the candidates who applied for the CJ job due to his 84-page resume which dwarfed the rest and his rejection is without a doubt a shocker to many.
