Chief Justice Martha Koome Announces the Passing of Hon. Justice David Majanja


It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that I, Chief Justice Martha Koome, announce the untimely passing of Hon. Justice David Amilcar Shikomera Majanja, a distinguished Judge of the High Court of Kenya and esteemed Commissioner of the Judicial Service Commission.

The sudden loss of Justice Majanja has left us all heartbroken. His dedication, intellect, and unwavering commitment to justice were defining features of his distinguished career. Justice Majanja was not only a leading figure in the development of transformative post-2010 jurisprudence but also a vital pillar in the institution-building efforts of the Judicial Service Commission and the Judiciary at large.

During this period of deep sorrow, I extend my heartfelt condolences to Justice Majanja’s family, friends, colleagues, and the entire Judiciary and JSC fraternity. We stand united in grief as we remember his significant contributions and the indelible impact he made on our judicial system.

We request that everyone exercise sensitivity and compassion as we navigate this challenging time of mourning together with the people of Kenya.

Further information will be shared in due course.

May the soul of Hon. Justice David Majanja rest in eternal peace.

Martha Koome
Chief Justice of Kenya
