Twice unlucky! JSC rejects MAKAU MUTUA again and picks a staunch SDA as next CJ

... 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.

  1. Admin it is stupid and archaic to even suggest that this scholar was rejected because he said he does not recognize the president dig harder and clarify his schooling background and law practice.

  2. 84 page CV with very few points in it. This man has never paid tax to this country, how be appointed and earn a salary that is from our hard earned sweat! I did an interview with the Public Service Commission for a junior position but was denied the job just because my certificate of good conduct had expired about 2 weeks ago at the time of the interview. Then why should Makau be given a CJ job with no certificate of good conduct! The JSC made a big mistake to score this man Mutua No. 3. Him and Kongani have no difference.

  3. Prof.They were making mockery of you.They had alreadyformed an opinion about you following your stand on the stolen elections.In any case you gave them the chance to hear you and you humbled yourself.GOOD.
