Justice David Maraga has been unanimously voted by Kenyan’s JSC for the position of Chief Justice following a grueling public interview process of more than 10 other highly qualified candidates.

Justice Maraga was the third applicant to face the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) in the search for Kenya’s next Chief Justice.

The 64-year-old Court of Appeal Judge hails from Nyamira County.

Education

He holds a Bachelor of Laws degree, LL.B, and a Masters of Law, LL.M, from the University of Nairobi.

Career

Before being appointed a Judge, David Kenani Maraga was in active private practice for 25 years covering criminal and civil litigations as well as conveyance.

During his interview, the world God to know him as a Staunch Seventh Day Adventist after stating that even on a Presidential Election Petition, he would not compromise God’s Holy Sabbath, Saturday with work.

The Seventh Day Adventist in response to a question from Senior Counsel Tom Ojienda said a presidential petition in his mind did not qualify as a matter of “life or death” and so he would not be inclined to violate the tenets of his faith in such an eventuality.

He said he would instead, in the said hypothetical situation, consult with his peers on the Supreme Court bench to find a way round the problem. Read More here

The JSC has since unanimously nominated him as Kenya’s Chief Justice and President of the Judiciary. His name will be forwarded to President Uhuru Kenyatta for appointment.

His understanding of the law and deep faith and reverence of God are attributes that Kenya will really appreciate.

We pray for God’s wisdom and guidance in this new position sir.
