Mr Michael Njeru Macharia, who was recently elected by lawyers as a male representative, and Justice David Majanja of the High Court were sworn in, in a ceremony presided over by Chief Justice David Maraga.

Justice Majanja was elected by members of the Kenya Judges and Magistrates Association and replaces Justice Aggrey Muchelule at the JSC.
