Justice minister Mutula Kilonzo has said that he will introduce a motion in Parliament that will seek the removal of some members of the Kenyan Judiciary. Mr Kilonzo told lawyers that he would seek to amend Section 62 of the Constitution that will see judges removed from office on the grounds of incompetency. The minister who was speaking on Friday when he officially closed the annual Law Society of Kenya (LSK) conference held at the Leisure Lodge resort in Diani, Mombasa said he would also request for support from the Chief Justice and Attorney General Amos Wako before presenting the motion. He will also back LSKs proposal to have the number of High Court judges increased to 120, so as to cater for the increasing number of litigants. In their request to the minister, lawyers urged that competitive processes for appointment of judges be put in place to allow interested parties to apply for the positions. Currently, the jobs are not advertised and appointments are by invitation only. At the same time, Mr Kilonzo said he was optimistic that the country would achieve a new Constitution within the given time limit, but lamented that there was lack of will. He, however, urged leaders to keep away partisan interests to facilitate the speedy delivery of the new law. The constitution review process attracts opposition of all quarters but I am sure this time it will be delivered. There is need to soften and smooth the rough edges for purposes of enabling the country to achieve this cause, he noted.
