Supreme Court judge falls sick during election petition hearing

The judge is currently being attended to by a doctor.

According to Chief Justice David Maraga, Ibrahim is currently being attended to by a doctor.

He is likely not to attend the Tuesday court case sessions.

He is one of the judges who heard the Presidential petition case presented to court in 2013 by Raila Odinga. He dismissed the petition on March 30, 2013.

On June 16, 2016, Dr. Willy Mutunga who had served as the Chief Justice since June 2011 quit and named Justice Ibrahim - the senior-most of the Judges left in the Court - as the acting President of the Supreme Court pending the recruitment of a substantive Chief Justice.

After an initial round of vetting, the Kenya Judges and Magistrates Vetting Board found Justice Ibrahim unfit to serve due to a tendency to delay judgments and rulings while serving as a High Court judge. He was however found suitable to serve after fresh vetting.

In June 2012, he was among 5 Justices nominated to the Supreme Court of Kenya by the Judicial Service Commission (Kenya) which had interviewed 25 applicants.
