President Kibaki has nominated Justice Alnassir Visram as the next Chief Justice in fresh reforms within Kenya's judiciary. The President also nominated lawyers Githu Muigai for the post of Attorney General and Kioko KiluKumi for the role of Director of Public Prosecutions. The President announced the nominations in a statement released Friday's evening. The list of nominees immediately sparked protests from the President's coalition partner ODM, who raised concern at the unilateral manner that the nominations were made. "This afternoon Ambassador Francis Muthaura called Isakhakia, who is the chief of staff of the Prime Minister, informing him that the President was going to announce the nominees to the posts of Chef Justice, Attorney General and Director of Public Prosecution," said Lands Minister James Orengo. " I am not against the individuals named, they are all lawyers of repute. What is of concern is the process, and this is clearly elaborated in the constitution which states that before making such appointments the President the must engage in full and thorough consultation with the Prime Minister," said Orengo.
