NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 19 – The Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Gladys Shollei says she has surrendered her fate to the Judicial Service Commission which is due to make a decision on Monday afternoon.
Shollei who arrived in the country on Sunday night from an official trip abroad said she knows little about the accusations facing her which was a subject of discussion by a Judicial Service Commission team.
She told journalists that she is also waiting to hear from the commission on what it has established and decided.
“The Chief Justice asked me to be in the office today (Monday) so that I can just understand what the issues are and then be able to respond to it. You probably know more than I do. So in the next few days you will be hearing more from me once I know what the exact issues are because I have heard about them only in the media,” she said.
“At 2.30pm, the Judicial Service Commission is meeting and I think you will get a response from the Chief Justice as regards that meeting.”
It is understood that the commission which is currently briefing Chief Justice Willy Mutunga on its findings has recommended she be sent on compulsory leave, pending an investigation into her conduct.
Mutunga is expected to make public the commission’s findings and recommendations on Monday afternoon.
Reports indicate that Shollei is on the spot over alleged financial improprieties on the Judiciary contracts amounting to Sh5 billion.
