Attorney General Advises Ruto Against Changing Constitution Every Time, Disagrees With This Plan

Attorney general Justin Muturi has disclosed that he held talks with president William Ruto after learning what the head of state is planning as far as the judiciary is concerned.

Speaking in an interview with The Nation, Muturi revealed that he held talks with president William Ruto after learning that there are plans to change the constitution to cap the number of court of appeal Judges at 50, which is an increase in the current number.

However, Muturi disagreed with the suggestion as made by JSC to amend the law to have fifty court of appeal Judges as it might lead to need to amend the constitution every time in case there is need to increase the number.

He, instead, advised president William Ruto against the idea and implored him that the law should be amended to have seventy court of appeal Judges to tame the need for unnecessary Constitutional Amendments.

"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 to have the number capped at 70 because you don’t have to keep on amending the law every time," he said.
