Morris Kimuli has today taken an Oath of Office to represent the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) in the panel that will select four nominees for the appointment for the position of Commissioners at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Speaking on Friday at the Supreme Court during the swearing in ceremony which was also attended by the President of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), Nelson Havi and other representatives from LSK, Chief Justice Martha Koome called upon the selection panel to be guided by values of the Constitution during the interviews.
“We are at the service of Kenyans and we must ensure we deliver our mandate,” said CJ Koome.
The Chairperson of the selection panel, Elizabeth Muli while offering her congratulatory remarks to Kimuli assured that the panel will carry out its duties freely and fairly.
Kimuli was appointed by the President on May 26, 2021 through a gazette notice to replace Dorothy Jemator, whose appointment was revoked.
Kimuli now joins the selection as the seventh member of the panel a month after it was constituted to fill the four vacant IEBC Commissioners’ positions.
