Justice Mohamed Ibrahim vetting by Sharad Rao
After the Kenya Constitution was promulgated in 2010, a Judges vetting board chaired by Sharad Rao declared Ibrahim unfit to continue working as a judge because he had a backlog of 264 judgements, rulings on applications and other matters, some that have been pending for eight years.
The board found that Ibrahim had twice promised to clear the backlog accumulated from his postings as High Court judge in several towns in Kenya.
Each time he failed to do so. He had made one such promise to the bar association, the Law Society of Kenya, and another to the Judicial Service Commission, the judiciary’s supervisory body that the Chief Justice chairs.
In 2012, the vetting board learned that Ibrahim had asked Chief Justice Willy Mutunga in May to allow him three months to clear the backlog. Mutunga granted Ibrahim’s request, on condition that he would be available for any Supreme Court cases he may be needed for.
