PRE­VENT­ING A LE­GAL CRI­SIS

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

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.
