Finally-JSC sacks Chief Registrar Gladys Shollei
NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 18 – Gladys Boss Shollei has been sacked as the Chief Registrar of the Kenyan Judiciary.
Chief Justice Willy Mutunga said a unanimous decision had been reached to remove her from office after two months of investigations into allegations of financial impropriety.
He told a news conference that the decision was taken “to avoid politicising the matter.”
He stressed that investigations into Shollei’s conduct was not a witch-hunt.
The decision to sack her came barely hours after Shollei declined to participate in any further disciplinary proceedings of the JSC.
Shollei appeared before the JSC on Friday morning and sought an adjournment of the proceedings to allow her to prepare her defence to the myriad of allegations, but the JSC chaired by Mutunga declined.
Shollei wanted time to probe a trove of emails emanating from the CJ, which she says prove that the decision to remove her from office was a foregone conclusion.-capitalfm
