LADY JUSTICE MWILU SWORN IN AS KENYA’S DEPUTY CHIEF JUSTICE

Lady Justice Philomena Mwilu has been sworn in as the Deputy Chief Justice while Justice Isaac Lenaola has been sworn in as a judge of the Supreme Court of Kenya.

Congratulating the new Deputy Chief Justice and Justice Lenaola after witnessing the swearing-in ceremony at State House Nairobi Friday, President Kenyatta said he looked forward to working together with the Judiciary in serving the people of Kenya.

“I just want to reiterate, once again, that at the end of the day we serve the same people. Therefore, we need to complement each other in discharging our mandates to the people. We are not in competition,” President Kenyatta said.

The President assured the Judiciary of his support to enable it to discharge its duties to Kenyans effectively.

Also present were Chief Justice David Maraga, Attorney-General Githu Muigai, Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary (Minister) Amina Mohamed, and Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua.

The swearing-in ceremony was conducted by Chief Registrar of Judiciary, Anne Atieno Amadi.
