| Mar 2nd 2016 | 1 min read
Nairobi: Sharad Rao was Wednesday sworn in as Chair of the tribunal formed to investigate bribery claims against Philip Tunoi in a ceremony presided over by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga.
The swearing in raises controversy as it comes days after the Secretary at the Office of The President Kennedy Kihara confirmed on national Television that Justice Jonathan Havelock would chair the committee in place of Rao.
Lawyers and analysts had raised questions over Rao’s fitness to chair the tribunal, arguing that the judge had not served at a superior court.
Havelock was not present when the team was sworn in on Wednesday.
Solicitor General Njee Muturi disputed reports that Havelock had declined to take up the position due to non-payment of Sh8 million by the Government.
He said Havelock had personal commitments and would take oath on Thursday.
