CJ MARTHA KOOME urges RUTO to table evidence of corrupt judges and stop shouting in rallies and funerals

Friday, January 12, 2024 - Chief Justice Martha Koome has indirectly urged President William Ruto to stop attacking the Judiciary without tabling concrete evidence of corrupt judges.

For the last month, Ruto has been attacking the Judiciary, claiming rogue judges are colluding with corrupt cartels to sabotage his development agenda for Kenyans.

Koome said the allegations should be backed with evidence and not on blanket statements being made without any proof.

She called out the Kenya Kwanza Alliance government for what she said was disrespecting constitutional order.

"Let us never take law into our hands. We all must remain faithful to the constitution which is our true North," Koome said.

Koome made the remarks at the Milimani Law Courts as CRJ Anne Amadi retired from office.

Going further, the Chief Justice said the commission is ready to process any complaints leveled against any Judge or Judicial Officer who is implicated in corruption or any other acts of misconduct.

"I urge all judges and judicial staff to continue discharging their duties per their oath of office," she said.
