After completing high school, which Martha jokes about having attended four different schools, she went on to pursue a law degree at Nairobi University and graduated with honors. At the young age of 24, Martha was appointed as a Magistrate and served in a number of courts including Nakuru and Kibera. As a Magistrate Martha was renowned for consistently demonstrating keen and just discernment in her cases.
