On 16 May 2022 the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) published notices in the media calling for nominations of interested persons to fill vacancies in the various Superior Courts including five vacancies in the Supreme Court of Appeal. The closing date for submission of nominations was set for 17 June 2022.  The screening Committee of the JSC met on 26 July 2022 and compiled a shortlist of candidates to be interviewed at its October sitting scheduled for 03 – 12 October 2022.  The shortlist which was published on 28 July 2022 has been amended with one additional candidate nominated for the Supreme Court of Appeal.  The names of the candidates to be interviewed by the JSC at its October 2022 sitting are as follows:

The JSC considered four nominations received for this vacancy and one of the candidates was not shortlisted. The JSC, in terms of Section 174(4) of the Constitution, must prepare a list of nominees with three names more than the number of appointments to be made. As a result, the JSC could not proceed to shortlist three candidates for one vacancy.

The JSC decided not to shortlist any candidate for these vacancies.
