Four judges who were sacked by the Judges and magistrate vetting board have unleashed scathing attack on the Law Society of Kenya of trying to delay the hearing of their judicial review applications lodged in the high court challenging their removal from judiciary.
The judges Justice Jeanne Gachache, Riara Omolo Samwel Bosire and Joseph Nyamu have asked the Supreme Court to dismiss the application by the LSK and order the matter referred back to the high court for hearing.
They through their lawyers Stephen Mwenesi and Ocheing Oduor told Justice ( Dr) Smoklin Wanjala and Njoki Ndungu, that there is no competent appeal that has been filed by LSK in which the supreme court is being asked to consolidate with the appeal filed by the office of the attorney general.
LSK had lost attempt to have the judicial review applications filed by the judges dismissed on grounds that the high court lacked jurisdiction to hear the applications challenging the decision of the Judges and magistrate vetting board, their application was also dismissed by the court of appeal
The lawyers told the court, asked the two bench judges to make a finding as to who is the attorney representing since the vetting board has an advocate representing it.
They further urged the court to also issue an order to investigate the board whose mandate has expired and it has continued to carry out the vetting contrary to provision of the law.
The courts will its ruling on notice to parties.
