The transfers come slightly over a month after Justice Koome reshuffled judges in the Court of Appeal.
The CJ, who was sworn into office in May this year, also posted seven judges who were recently appointed to serve in the court.
“The transfers are done in accordance with the Transfer Policy of the Court of Appeal that spells out clearly how long a judge should serve in one station, among other issues,” the CJ said in a statement.
