Never-say-die judge fights ‘unlawful’ dismissal

A High Court judge thrown out of the Bench 10 years ago has now renewed his bid to reclaim his job after filing a constitutional suit seeking to quash the findings of a tribunal that recommended his removal. Justice Tom Mbaluto has lodged a fresh application in the Constitutional and Judicial Review division challenging the findings of a five-judge tribunal that recommended to President Mwai Kibaki that he was unsuitable to serve in the judiciary. Mr Mbaluto was among the 23 judges who were suspended in the infamous 2003 “radical surgery” of the judiciary spearheaded by Court of Appeal judge (rtd) and former director of the defunct Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission Aaron Ringera.
