In September, Chief Justice David Maraga sparked excitement across after he attended the opening of the Commonwealth Magistrates and Judges Conference, in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Maraga's name was met with a huge and thunderous applause from his fellow peers across the globe after he was introduced at the conference in Tanzania.

The reaction was an ominous sign of the respect that Kenya's Chief Justice wields not only across the continent but also worldwide following the historic ruling by the Supreme Court that nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's win during the August 8 elections.

At the conference, Maraga, 66, was given a special mention before the Commonwealth Magistrates and Judges.

"We are deeply honoured by your presence - Hon Chief Justice Maraga," the host, Tanzania Chief Justice Ibrahim Juma said.
