Kenya selected five appointees to serve on first Supreme Court
Cody Harding at 12:00 AM ET

On June 15, 2011, the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) of Kenya selected five appointees to serve on the nation's first Supreme Court as part of a recently passed constitutional mandate. The nominees were then sent to President Mwai Kibaki for approval. The creation of the court was preceded by accusations of fraud and intense violence following Kenya's disputed 2007 presidential election. A new constitution was introduced that sought to curb presidential power. The constitution passed with strong support through nationwide referendum in August 2010 and precipitated the creation of the court.
