Former Attorney- General Githu Muigai is set to join the list of high flying corporate chiefs and State officers taking back their wealth of experiences to university students.
Prof Muigai said he’ll be back in the classroom from June after more than 35 years career in law spanning public and private sectors.
“I’m starting my teaching job in the next six months. I should have started earlier but I wanted to enjoy my leave in full,” he disclosed.
He, however, did not reveal the university he’s heading to. Githu’s surprising resignation as the Attorney General was announced by President Kenyatta, on Tuesday, February 13.
He has since been replaced by Justice Paul Kihara Kariuki who at the time served as president of the Court of Appeal.
He assumed office on August 27, 2011, one year after the inauguration of the new constitution through an appointment by former President Mwai Kibaki. In December 2018, he stated that he was training his eyes on academia and wanted to get back to his lecturing job at the University of Nairobi.
He is presently serving as a member of UN Human Rights Council working group on business and human rights.
The former AG holds a Bachelors degree in Law from the University of Nairobi, a Masters degree in International Law from Columbia University School of Law, and a Doctorate in law.
His areas of expertise include commercial litigation and arbitration, constitutional and administrative law, ICT law, insurance and banking law, investments Law, mergers & acquisitions law and public procurement law.
