Former Chief Justice Dr. Willy Mutunga has joined MUHURI Board.
Dr. Mutunga takes to the board an immense wealth of experience, especially in the civil society and human rights sector.
His impressive track record of defending the constitution and the rule of law is expected to advance MUHURI goal of increasing resistance to impunity and expanding constitutionalism in Kenya.
Justice Mutunga was instrumental in the constitution-making processes in the country.
He implemented the progressive 2010 Kenyan Constitution, serving as the head of the Judiciary and President of the Supreme Court of Kenya—the position he held from 2011 to 2016.
According to the Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI) Board Chairperson Khelef Khalifa, Mutunga’s synergy will strengthen the organisation to promote and defend all human rights accountably, responsively, and professionally.
“Through his position as the Chief Justice, Justice Mutunga achieved striking progress in bringing the justice system closer to the ordinary people which is part of a program at MUHURI under the mobile court sessions,” said Mr. Khalifa.
