High Court of Kenya

In the new Constitution, the High Court of Kenya will have a Principal Judge elected by fellow judges of the High Court from among themselves. It will have unlimited original jurisdiction in criminal and civil matters; jurisdiction to determine whether a right or fundamental freedom in the Bill of Rights has been denied or violated and jurisdiction to hear an appeal from a decision of a tribunal to consider the removal of a person from office.

The High Court of Kenya also has jurisdiction to hear questions on the interpretation of the Constitution and constitutional powers of State organs in respect of county governments and the constitutional relationship between the levels of government. Such matters will be heard by an uneven number of judges — not less than three — assigned by the Chief Justice.

The judges will be appointed by the President with the recommendation of the Judicial Service Commission.
