Peter Munya defends Charles Nyachae’s appointment to regional court

The government has denied reports that due process was not followed in the appointment of former Constitutional Implementation Committee Chairperson, Charles Nyachae, to a regional court.

According to Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of East African Community (EAC) and Northern Corridor Development, Peter Munya, Nyachae’s appointment as a judge of East African Court of Justice was primarily the prerogative of President Uhuru Kenyatta and thus the input of the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) was not needed.

Speaking earlier today, he explained that the JSC manages, appoints, and oversees judges working in the Republic of Kenya, adding that they have no role in international relations.
