JSC to hear Justice Njoki Ndung’u over allegations of misconduct
The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has said that it will give Supreme Court Judge Njoki Ndung’u full opportunity to heard in the event that a tribunal is formed to investigate allegations of misconduct raised against her by former Law Society of Kenya (LSK) CEO Apollo Mboya.
In an affidavit sworn by Chief Registrar Ann Amadi on behalf of the commission, JSC urged the court to dismiss the application by Mboya on grounds that the petition has no merit.
“It will not be appropriate for this court to delve into the substantial claims of the petitioner, and the accuracy or actual effect of the said minutes, since doing so would open up confidential proceedings of the supreme court judges to interrogation by this court” argued JSC in the affidavit.
Njoki Ndung’u had moved to court seeking orders to stop JSC from investigating her.
However, the court declined to issue the orders sought and directed that JSC gives her opportunity to be heard before making any decisions.
Former LSK boss Apollo Mboya wants Njoki Ndung’u removed from the judiciary over alleged misconduct.
The case will be heard on July 11th before Justice Joseph Onguto.
