Whether time for filing a supplementary record of appeal could be extended before the expiry of the prescribed time-frame

 

Bwana Mohamed Bwana v Silvano Buko Bonaya & 2 others

Civil Application No 20 of 2014

Supreme Court of Kenya at Nairobi

M K Ibrahim & J B Ojwang, SCJJ

May 28, 2014

Reported by Beryl A Ikamari

 

Brief facts

The applicant filed a record of appeal at the Supreme Court for purposes of an appeal touching on an election petition. However, certain documents, including the Court of Appeal judges' notes and a certified copy of the order of the Court of Appeal, were not included in the record of appeal. The applicant intended to include those documents in a supplementary record of appeal. While the applicant was allowed to file a supplementary record of appeal without leave of court within 15 days of lodging the record of appeal, the applicant anticipated that the documents would not be filed within the given time-frame. He sought leave to file a supplementary record of appeal despite the fact that there was still time to file the supplementary record of appeal without leave of court.

The gist of the Court of Appeal’s decision, against which a Supreme Court appeal was being lodged, was that the Court of Appeal had no jurisdiction to entertain the appeal as the record of appeal filed at the Court of Appeal did not include a certified decree and was therefore incomplete. The Court of Appeal ruled that the decree was a primary document which could not be included in the record via a supplementary record of appeal.

 

Issues

  1. Whether time for filing a supplementary record of appeal, at the Supreme Court, could be extended before the expiry of the prescribed time-frame.

 

Appellate jurisdiction-institution of appeals-institution of appeals at the Supreme Court-supplementary record of appeal-whether time for filing a supplementary record of appeal could be extended before the expiry of the prescribed time-frame-Supreme Court Rules, 2012, rules 33(1) & 33(6).

 

Held

  1. The applicant had failed to exercise due diligence in ensuring the record of appeal at the Court of Appeal was complete and in prosecuting the appeal.
  2. In accordance with Rule 33(1) of the Supreme Court Rules, 2012, an appeal would be instituted at the Supreme Court by lodging the following documents at the registry within 30 days of filing the notice of appeal, namely;
  1. a petition of appeal
  2. a record of appeal; and
  3. the prescribed fee
  1. The record of appeal would entail a complete bundle of documentation, including the pleadings, submissions and judgment from the lower court, without which the appellate court would be unable to determine the appeal. (Law Society of Kenya v Centre for Human Rights and Democracy & 12 others, Petition No 14 of 2013, Supreme Court of Kenya at Nairobi.)
  2. Under rule 33(6) of the Supreme Court Rules, 2012, the applicant still had time to file a supplementary record of appeal without leave of court and it was inappropriate to apply for extension of time at that point. A party seeking extension of time to file an appeal under the stated rule 33 could only do so upon the expiry of the prescribed time.

Application dismissed.

Transitional provisions & the retirement age for judges appointed under the repealed Constitution.

 

Philip K Tunoi & another v Judicial Service Commission & another

Petition 244 of 2014

High Court of Kenya at Nairobi

Milimani Law Courts

G V Odunga, J

May 28, 2014

Reported by Beryl A Ikamari & Karen Mwende

 

Brief facts

In a letter dated April 28, 2014, the Chief Registrar wrote to the Petitioners informing them that the Judicial Service Commission had resolved that all judges would retire at the age of seventy years. The letter elaborated on the date at which each of the Petitioners was expected to retire and appreciated the Petitioners' services. Concerning retirement age, the Judicial Service Commission, had issued two conflicting letters; a letter dated May 24, 2011 stated that the retirement age for the Petitioners would be seventy four years and a letter dated March 27, 2014, which stated that the retirement age for all judges would be seventy years.

The Petitioners were challenging the constitutionality of the resolution of the Judicial Service Commission on retirement age. They explained that as part of the transitional measures, particularly as provided for in section 31 of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, they were entitled to retire in accordance with the terms of the previous Constitution which provided that their retirement age would be seventy four years.

As an interim measure the Petitioners sought conservatory orders to prevent the enforcement of the retirement age of seventy years, while their petition was still pending for hearing and determination.

 

Issue

  1. Whether conservatory orders would be granted to prevent the enforcement of the retirement age of seventy years for all judges serving in the Judiciary.

 

Constitutional Law-judiciary-judges-tenure of office-retirement age for judges-whether conservatory orders would be issued to prevent the enforcement of the retirement age of seventy years for judges who were appointed under the terms of the repealed Constitution of Kenya-Constitution of Kenya, 2010, Sixth Schedule, section 31.

Constitutional Law-fundamental rights and freedoms-enforcement of fundamental rights and freedoms-remedies for breaches of fundamental rights and freedoms-conservatory orders-circumstances in which the court would grant conservatory orders to prevent an alleged breach of fundamental rights and freedom-Constitution of Kenya, 2010, article 22 & 23(3)(c).

 

Held

  1. Article 23(3)(c) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, entitled the court to grant any appropriate relief, including a conservatory order, in a suit which concerned the enforcement of fundamental rights and freedoms. A party seeking a conservatory order would be required to show that he had a prima facie case with a likelihood of success and that unless the court grants the order he would suffer prejudice as a result of a violation or threatened violation of the Constitution. (Centre for Rights Education and Awareness (CREAW) & 7 others v Attorney General, Petition 16 of 2011, High Court of Kenya at Nairobi.)
  2. A conservatory order would direct both parties to a suit not to undertake any action for purposes of enforcing their respective rights until a final determination was made. Effectively, it ensured that the status quo would be maintained.
  3. The issues raised in the petition were weighty matters requiring further investigations. Those issues included the question on whether within the terms of section 31 of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution of Kenya 2010, the petitioners had attained the retirement age and whether the Judicial Service Commission had powers to make resolutions concerning the retirement age of judges.

Conservatory orders issued. (Conservatory orders were issued prohibiting the Respondents from removing or retiring the Petitioners from service as Judges of Superior Courts, pending the hearing and determination of the application inter partes.)
