The Vetting Board, which comprised of Justices Abdirashid Abdulahi, Fedrick Chomba and Roselyn Odede, found Mr Sergon unsuitable to continue serving in the Judiciary over accusations of corruption.

“The board having heard the application finds that the judge has established that there were serious errors manifest on the face of the record that led to a finding of unsuitability,” the board stated in its decision dated May 30, 2013, as quoted by Daily Nation.

The judge later appealed the decision, citing errors and omissions by the board in their decision to sack him.
