Koome was sworn in at a ceremony witnessed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Attorney General Paul Kihara, Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu and the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Anne Amadi.
The 61-year-old career judge becomes the country’s first female Chief Justice and head of the Judiciary. She replaces David Maraga, who retired early this year.
The fifteenth Chief Justice dazzled in a red robe, reintroduced by Maraga in 2016 following the departure of Willy Mutunga who favoured green robes during his tenure as the CJ.
Kelvin looked dapper in a statement-making black ensemble while Kagwira stunned in a show-stopping midi dress. Nkirote brought a refreshing look to African prints with subtle accessories and chic afro.
Koome's husband, Kiragu, serves as the chairperson of the Habitat for Humanity-Kenya.
He leads various programs that help communities develop proper housing, water use, sanitation, energy access and land tenure.
