The Star (Kenya) - - Politics | General -

Jus­tice Mwilu, known by her col­leagues as a re­spect­ful judge who treats both ju­nior and se­nior staff equally, served as a High Court judge be­fore her ap­point­ment as Deputy Chief Jus­tice.

The soft-spo­ken judge is as­sertive and not eas­ily swayed ac­cord­ing to those who know her.

She grad­u­ated from the University of Nairobi and was ad­mit­ted as an ad­vo­cate of the High Court of Kenya in 1984. She has prac­ticed law at Muthoga Gaturu & Com­pany and later Mu­tunga & Com­pany Ad­vo­cates. She has worked as com­pany sec­re­tary in a state cor­po­ra­tion be­fore be­ing ap­pointed as a judge of the High Court in 2007. She has served in the com­mer­cial di­vi­sion in Nairobi, the El­doret High Court and the Civil Ap­peals sub­di­vi­sion of the High Court, the mur­der sec­tion of the crim­i­nal di­vi­sion and the En­vi­ron­ment and Land Di­vi­sion of the High Court.
