Willy Munyoki Mutunga

Dr. Willy Munyoki Mutunga (born, 16 June 1947 in Kitui District, Eastern Kenya) is a Kenyan lawyer, intellectual and pro-reform activist. On 13 May 2011, he was nominated by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) as the sole candidate for the position of Kenya’s Chief Justice that became vacant following the exit of Justice Evans Gicheru. President Mwai Kibaki, after consultations with Prime Minister Raila Odinga, passed on his name to the National Assembly for vetting and confirmation in line with the country’s new constitution. Mutunga’s nomination drew a searchlight on his hitherto little-known private life, pioneering an American-style scrutiny of the private records of those seeking high public offices.
