AG Justin Muturi Sworn In As JSC Commissioner

Attorney General Justin Muturi has taken the oath of office as a Judicial Service Commission commissioner.

Tuesday at the Supreme Court facilities, Chief Justice Martha Koome administered his oath of office.

Speaking after taking the oath, Muturi reaffirmed his determination to work hard and carry out his responsibilities to the best of his ability.

He remarked, “May I assure you of my complete and unequivocal support and commitment towards the completion of the role of the Commission.”

CJ Koome, for her part, expressed faith in Muturi’s output, stressing that he would be responsible for fostering wise connections between the Executive and the Judiciary.

As we seek to fulfill the JSC’s constitutional purpose, she continued, “I am confident you will be a valuable team player in the Commission and act as a conduit between the Commission and the executive branch.”

Assuming his position, Muturi will be responsible for the selection and oversight of judges and other judicial personnel as well as for fostering the independence and accountability of the judiciary.

On October 27, 2022, AG Muturi took the oath of office at State House Nairobi, which marked the beginning of his formal tenure.

Paul Kihara Kariuki, who had been on the docket since 2018, was replaced by him.
