Kenya's Attorney General resigns: President
Kenya’s Attorney General Githu Muigai has resigned, President Uhuru Kenyatta said without explanation on Tuesday, adding he had nominated a replacement.
In a post on his Twitter feed, Kenyatta said he had accepted Muigai’s resignation as Attorney General, the official title of the chief legal adviser to the government.
Muigai was appointed as part of reforms to boost confidence in Kenya’s judiciary after a new constitution was enacted in 2010.
Kenyatta said he had nominated Paul Kihara Kariuki, the President of the Court of Appeal, as Muigai’s replacement. Kihara will have to be vetted by parliament before taking up his post.
