Khawar Qureshi makes first appearance in Mwilu case
A bench of five judges will on Thursday hear an application by two organisations that have sought to join a petition seeking to determine whether criminal charges should be brought against Deputy Chief Justice (DCJ) Philomena Mwilu. Today will also be the first appearance for Queen’s Counsel Khawar Qureshi, who was recently appointed by Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji to argue the case. The Federation of Women Lawyers (Fida Kenya), International Commission of Jurists (ICJ Kenya) and lawyer Adrian Kamotho have sought to join the case, a move opposed by Mr Haji and Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki.
