Former Chief Justice Evans Gicheru has passed on.

Gicheru served as the 12th Chief Justice of the country after being appointed by former President Mwai Kibaki.

He served in the position from 2003 to 2011 when he retired and handed over to Willy Mutunga.

His death was confirmed by Chief Justice David Maraga who issued a statement on behalf of the judiciary.

“I am deeply saddened to announce the demise of retired Chief Justice Evans Gicheru which occurred this morning. Justice Gicheru had a lengthy career in the public service, which started when he was appointed a District Officer in Wajir,” CJ Maraga said in a statement.

Maraga said the late Gicheru will be remembered for “entrenching independence in the judiciary ending the tradition where the Judiciary took instructions from the Executive in the discharge of its daily functions.”

“He brought honour to the office of the Chief Justice by ensuring that it became the indisputable custodian of integrity within the Judiciary,” Maraga added.
