He was appointed to the High Court of Kenya in October 2003 and to the Court of Appeal in 2011.
Mr. Maraga is a holder of an LL.B as well as LL.M from the University of Nairobi (UoN). He as well is the boss of the Judiciary Committee on Elections, his job being to oversee election petition hearings that may arise after the 2017 elections within the prescribed period in the constitution.
He successfully underwent the vetting board fending off accusations of tribalism and bribery accusations and was unanimously endorsed to continue to serve in 2012. He is a true SDA Fellowship member as well. He shined and did well during the vetting proceedings that even to some point, mentioned God’s name loudly and went on to swear that he has never in his life, involved himself in any corruption cases.
