The Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Anne Amadi on Friday 12th January 2024 ended her services at the Judiciary after being in government service for 10 years. She will now be succeeded by her deputy Paul Ndemo whom she handed over to. Ndemo will hold the office in an acting capacity.
The Amadi’s exit was presided over by the Chief Justice Martha Koome who praised Amadi for her transformative and impactful leadership.
“We have had a good time and equally faced a lot of challenges including implementation of the Innovative Case Management System and streamlining procedures…we have weathered the storms of misconduct and perception of misconduct,” Koome said.
On her side, Amadi highlighted some of her achievements that she is proud of as she now takes a bow.
“Indeed I know the future of the Kenyan Judiciary is bright, beaming with potential, and as I step aside I know that the Judiciary is in capable hands…those of the CJ,” Amadi said.
Amadi now goes down in history as the only Chief Registrar of the Judiciary who administered the oath of office to two different Presidents; Uhuru Kenyatta in 2017, and William Ruto in 2022.
She joined the Judiciary in 1990 as a District Magistrate II, and rose through the ranks to become a Resident Magistrate before joining private legal practice between 1997 and 2003.
