She is the daughter of the late Makueni senator Mutula Kilonzo and is most notable for her performance as the head counsel for AFRICOG’s (Africa Centre for Open Governance) petition against the declaration of Uhuru Kenyatta as the president of Kenya

Kethi was not known by many up untill 2013 when she represented the African Center for Open Governance (AFRICOG) in the election petitions after President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the fourth president of the republic of Kenya after the elections of 4th March 2013. AFRICOG had filed the petition alongside the main opposition party, the coalition for reforms and democracy (CORD) which was led by Raila Odinga. Even though they lost the petition, Kethi gained reputation as one of the most eloquent and bright lady lawyers who understood the law.

 

 

 Education

She joined the University of Nairobi in 1997 for her Bachelor Degree in Law and joined the Kenya School of Law for a diploma in law before being admitted to the Bar.

Kethi then returned to University of Nairobi (UoN) where she did a Masters of Law degree in Public Finance.

Career

She is the daughter of the late Makueni senator Mutula Kilonzo and is most notable for her performance as the head council for AFRICOG’s (Africa Centre for Open Governance) petition against the declaration of Uhuru Kenyatta as the president of Kenya.

Kethi has acted for former President Moi in a number of cases, including one in which former MP Mak’Onyango claimed he was unlawfully detained during the 1982 attempted coup. Based on her submission to the court, the then High Court judge Kalpana Rawal absolved the former Head of State from any liability on grounds that there was no evidence of personal misconduct in the detention of the petitioner.
