AG. Justin Muturi Laments Understaffing has Hindered Service Delivery

On Monday, Attorney General Justin Muturi emphasized the serious problem of understaffing in his office, stressing that this problem has impeded the effective provision of services around the country.

AG Muturi made this observation while speaking at a forum for legal professionals, pointing out that the State Law Office is severely understaffed and lacks attorneys who can handle the task that is expected of them.

Muturi revealed that the opening of offices in the 47 devolved units has stopped, even though the cabinet approved it six months prior.

Muturi asserted that his office must be given the support it requires in order to properly carry out its duty since he firmly believes in the Constitution.

He went on to say that insufficient legal representation in various parts of the nation has resulted in subpar service delivery.

President William Ruto presided over a Cabinet meeting in State House Nairobi on June 27 that authorized the creation of State Law Offices in the 47 counties.

The need to improve service delivery and bring services closer to the people drove the decision to devolve State Law Office functions.

The Attorney General’s office has thirteen regional offices, according to data that is available on its website.

Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Eldoret, Kakamega, Malindi, Kisii, Embu, Machakos, Meru, Nyeri, Garissa, and Kericho are the places where they may be found.

On October 22, Attorney General Justin Muturi—a former Speaker of the National Assembly—was named to the role.

Sworn in in 2018, he succeeded Paul Kihara Kariuki, who had worked for former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
