Excitement as CJ candidate discloses history with Citizen TV anchor Waihiga Mwaura

Moments from Chief Justice panel interviews

Justice Nduma Nderi arriving at the Supreme Court to be interviewed for the position of the Chief Justice.

High Court Judge Matthews Nduma Nderi becomes the sixth candidate to be vetted by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) for the position of Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court of Kenya.

In an interview which began at some minutes past 9am, Justice Nderi elaborated on his experience as a National Youth Service (NYS) pioneer recruit, SONU chairperson, judge in Eswatini and at the Labour Court.

While speaking on his earlier days as a lawyer in Kenya, Justice Nderi pointed out that he had previously worked with Citizen TV anchor Waihiga Mwaura.

"As soon as I joined the Kenya School of Law, I was a pupil at the firm of Vohra & Gitau Advocates under the good hands of Singh Vohra the advocate and founder of Sarova Hotels and in him I learnt great qualities of servant leadership which I espouse to date. In that year he walked me, like his own child through the paces of leadership the way you would a son.

"I was also in the same firm as Waihiga Mwaura who was an Associate there, a very staunch Christian and advocate of repute in the country and further a Citizen TV anchor and in their hands I started my career as a young advocate quite well," the candidate expounded.

The "name-drop" excited one of Waihiga's colleagues, Mr Sam Gituku who tweeted: "I work with @WaihigaMwaura."
