The administration of President William Ruto got off to a strong start and is anticipated to perform much better now that its cabinet is set to be revealed. People have been keeping track of Ruto's behavior for a while and believe he won't keep the Attorney General like Uhuru Kenyatta did. The attorney general who served under Uhuru starting in 2018 is Paul Kihara.
There are now three prominent lawyers who are close with Ruto, according to reports from those close to the president, and he may choose one of them to be his Attorney General. These three attorneys are also keen to fill the open post. The job of Solicitor General, currently held by Kennedy Ogeto, is also up for grabs.
Githu Muigai, who Uhuru Kenyatta appointed as the AG in 2013, was succeeded as AG in 2017 by Paul Kihara. Kenyans observed that the incumbent Attorney General was not well-treated or honored during a recent ceremony at State House where six judges were sworn in, which is an indication that he may be returning home.
Names that are expected to top the list of Ruto's potential Attorney General include his lawyer Katwa Kigen, city attorney Ahmednasir Abdullahi and Kithure Kindiki.
