Attorney-General Hon. Muturi Advises Ruto Against Changing Constitution Every Time

Attorney-General Hon. Justin Muturi today made a sudden u-turn, advised President William Samoei Ruto against changing the Kenya's 2010 Constitution every time. The soft spoken Attorney-General who was appointed by President William Ruto said that changing Constitution each and every time to accommodate some issues is not sitting well.

After learning there was a plan to change the constitution to accommodate other 50 appellate judges, Mr. Justin Muturi advised Ruto to increase the number of judges to 70 instead of 50. According to Muturi, this was to prevent further amending of Constitution in future when the shortages of court judges arise.

"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," Attorney-General Hon. Justin Muturi said.
