DCJ candidate opposed to death penalty

19 February 2013, 16:59

Nairobi - Interviews seeking a candidate to fill the position of Deputy Chief Justice entered the second day on Tuesday, with Rachael Omamo being the first one questioned over her suitability.

According to Capital News, Omamo was put to task over how she would handle contentious sections of the Constitution such as the death penalty, abortion and same sex relationships, if she got the job.

She told the committee that she would rule to abolish the death penalty because it infringed the right to life but did not foresee a situation where future Parliaments would pass a Bill allowing abortion under any circumstances.
