Attorney General Justin Muturi says that he disagrees with President William Ruto on ongoing constitutional reforms, claiming that he told the president that the number of affiliate court justices needed to be increased from 50 to 70.
After the Judicial Service Commission that the president appoint 50 judges to the appellate court, this has happened. To avoid constantly amending the constitution, Justin Muturi had to speak with the president and suggested that he simply raise the number to 70.
"The JSC had proposed 50 judges in the appellate court. But I had a chat with the president and advised him that it is better capped at 70 because you don't have to keep on amending the the law every time," the former Democratic Party (DP) said as quoted by the nation.
Justin Muturi was appointed by President Ruto as Attorney General after his loyal support for Kenya Kwanza Government.
