High Court judge Msagah Mbogholi has vowed to clear the backlog of cases in courts should he be hired the next Chief Justice.
He proposes the reintroduction of the office of chief court administrator to supervise work done by magistrates to ensure there are no delays occasioned by judicial staff.
Mbogholi, who is the longest serving judge in the country, said he wants to be remembered as a CJ who satisfied Kenyans with respect to access to justice and restoration of confidence in the judiciary.
He is the second candidate interviewed for the position which fell vacant following retirement of Willy Mutunga.
Court of appeal judge Alnashir Visram was the first to face the Judicial Service Commission on August 29.
