The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Daniel Musinga, will today take an oath of office as he assumes his seat as the Court’s President.
Musinga replaces Justice William Ouko after the latter’s appointment as the President of the Supreme Court was elected on May 24 by the Appeal Judges.
Musinga was appointed as the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee on Elections (JCE) in January this year, a position that he took over from the High Court Judge, Msagha Mbogholi.
The Judges of the Court of Appeal elect the Court of Appeal judge for a five-year term. The Court of Appeal is made up of 30 judges whose vote is verified by the IEBC.
He started his legal career in 1988, as an advocate of the high court.
Musinga constituted the seven-judge Court of Appeal bench that is set to hear the consolidated appeals against the Constitutional Court judgement invalidating the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) constitution amendment bill at the end of the month.
