Justine Muthuri Joins Judicial Service Comission After Taking Oath

Justin Muturi, the attorney general, took the oath of office and has since joined the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).

Chief Justice Martha Koome presided over the ceremony at the Supreme Court premises when the previous National Assembly Speaker was sworn in.

Speaking just moments after taking the oath, Muturi vowed to do his very best to fulfill his obligations.

'May I assure you of my complete and unwavering support and dedication towards the completion of the role of the Commission,' he said.

For her part, Chief Justice Martha Koome voiced confidence in Muturi's ability to fulfill his mandate.

The experience of Muturi, she continued, will help the commission's collaborative efforts to secure the independence and accountability of the judiciary.

I have no doubt that you'll contribute significantly to the Commission and act as a liaison between it and the executive branch as we seek to fulfill the JSC's constitutional role.

The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) is in charge of choosing qualified and appropriate applicants for appointment as judges and looking into complaints about judicial officials. Additionally, it provides advice to the administration of justice and the judiciary.

The JSC is comprised of the Chief Justice, the Attorney General, one High Court judge, one magistrate, one Supreme Court judge, one Court of Appeal judge, and one judge chosen by the Court of Appeal judges.

There are two supporters of it as well, one of whom has been nominated
