    Prof. Muigai’s job of advising the government has been rolled together with another ministerial post. Thus, compromizing his independence. This is actually the first time in the history of the country that an AG has willingly agreed to be reduced to a spanner boy! This other stuff is mere tribal hubris meant to protect our village boy!!!!

    Well argued Bwana senior lawyer. Cord has lost all legal arguments. So it is understandable when they raise legal humbris all the time.. it is expected of dimwits.

    This is not well urged! You say he was appointed by Kibaki in consultation with PM hence that was under the national accord! His appointment therefore had to be renewed or terminated within the new consitution! Kibe Mungai is trying to defend an illegality please give us a break!
