Maraga to Strike Out Positions After Shocking Revelations on Judiciary

Shocking revelations forces Chief Justice Maraga to act quick.

Chief Justice David Maraga

The reports dubbed 'Judiciary Organisation Review' which revealed the confusion of different job descriptions and what each entails proposed for an overhaul of the judiciary.

Out of the evaluation, five job grades will be struck out as the judiciary currently has 16 job grades.

Proposed Changes

Some of the proposed changes involve having all employees graded into 11 levels.

The highest in the rank will be Grade One which will be occupied by directors, executive officer, chief of staff in the Chief Justice’s office and the registrar in the office of the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary.

Management level will be clustered from one to six while junior staff will be from level seven to 11. The lowest in the rank, level 11, will be Support Staff One and Two who ought to carry out general jobs.

Notably, the Chief Justice promised that no staff would be laid off in the forthcoming job changes.

Sacking Staff

“I am aware of the challenges in terms of implementation and the anxieties that such a change can bring," the Chief Justice remarked.

"While the recommendations in the organisational review report will result in substantial changes in the institutional arrangements and structures in the Judiciary and the Judicial Service Commission, the changes have incorporated the entire current workforce of the Judiciary,” he added.

Similar changes had been made under CJ Maraga's predecessor Willy Mutunga and the 2003 Aaron Ringera Commission and Sharad Rao led Judges and Magistrates Vetting Board.
