PREVENTING A LEGAL CRISIS
At the same time, High Court judge Pauline Nyamweya pulled out of the race, saying she comes from the same community as CJ nominee David Maraga. The two are Kisii and their nomination might not augur well with regional balancing. The Machakos judge said if she were to do the interview and be successful, she might cause a constitutional crisis. “I have thought it prudent to withdraw my application. My candidature might bring about a contradiction,” Nyamweya said. She also withdrew from the Supreme Court judge position, for which interviews are to be held next week. The JSC accepted her withdrawal.
