Former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga is set to make a comeback with a brand new, fully furnished government office.

This follows the signing into law of the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill 2018 that introduced a clause of "office and office equipment" as part of his retirement benefits.

The new law signed by President Uhuru Kenyatta on January 1, 2018, granted the same benefit to all retired Parliament speakers, CJs and deputy heads of Judiciary since 1993.

Winning at Retirement

The retired CJ already enjoys a monthly pension that is above Sh1 million, an executive medical insurance cover, a personal assistant, secretary, house keepers, gardeners and cleaners at taxpayers’ expense.

In addition he has support staff, armed security guards, diplomatic passports, maintenance expenses for vehicles and access to VIP lounges at all airports.

Others who will now have government offices are former CJ Bernard Chunga (1999-2003) and former CJ Evan Gicheru (2003-2011) who are both still alive.

Former DCJ Kalpana Rawal, former speakers Ekwee Ethuro, Kenneth Marende and Francis ole Kaparo will also have new offices as the law takes effect.
