RUTO gives in to CJ MARTHA KOOME’s demands as he agrees to sit down with her and iron out their differences

Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - President William Ruto has agreed to hold talks with Chief Justice Martha Koome and the two Speakers of Parliament following the sustained attacks on the Judiciary in the past two weeks.

Speaking during the commissioning of Tinderet Integrated Technical and Trainers College, Nandi County yesterday, Ruto explained that dialogue was necessary to rid the Judiciary of what he described as a few 'corrupt' individuals who he claimed have kept disrupting the country's development.

"I agree with what CJ says about dialogue and we must have a conversation about corruption and we will not allow graft to impede our development," the Head of State remarked.

"This is the year we will sort out corruption in Kenya. Let me tell you CJ, I am ready to hold a meeting between the leadership of the Executive, Judiciary, and Legislature. 

"I am ready for the conversation on how we will deal with corruption because it is sabotaging the progress and potential of Kenya."

The President also noted that the conversation should encompass all relevant stakeholders.

"I am going to lead from the front in that conversation so that we can deal with the corrupt who go to court to escape justice and stall government operations. 

"They want to hold the system hostage by bribing the Judiciary through hiring expensive lawyers and derailing the progress," he noted.

"I'm confident that we will have that conversation."

On Monday, CJ Koome called for a meeting with Ruto to discuss the issues he has raised in the past weeks over alleged corruption in the Judiciary.
