CJ Mutunga appoints judges to hear Joho’s degree case
NAIROBI, KENYA: Chief Justice Willy Mutunga has appointed a three-judge bench to hear case challenging the authenticity of Mombasa Governor Joho’s degree certificate.
The bench, comprising of Justices Christine Meoli (Presiding), Edward Muriithi and Martin Muya, will sit in Mombasa.
Last year, Mr Silas Otuke filed a case in the High Court claiming that the Constitution and the Elections Act had been violated.
Justice Muriithi in his May 14, 2014 ruling certified that the matter raised substantial constitutional questions of law that warrant consideration by a three-judge bench.
