Maraga made history as the first East African judge to nullify a presidential election
Maraga was perhaps an unknown figure to many Kenyans even after his swearing in as the 14th Chief Justice of Kenya and the President of the Supreme Court about an year ago.
The father of three has risen steadily from an advocate to occupying the highest position in the Judiciary.
Maraga holds a Masters of Law Degree (LLM) from the University of Nairobi and a bachelor of Law degree from the same University.
He was appointed to the High Court of Kenya in 2003 by retired President Mai Kibaki before serving as the Presiding Judge of the Court of Appeal in Kisumu as from 2012 until his appointed as the Chief Justice.
Justice Maraga has been termed by many as a person of integrity, which they attribute to his being a devout Seventh-day Adventist. He told an interview panel that if appointed Chief Justice, he would never preside over a case on a Saturday, a day of rest and worship for members of the Adventist faith.
Many Kenyans heaped praise on him particularly during last year's poll after he became the first East African Chief Justice to nullify a Presidential election.
