You have always been the enemy – RUTO hits back at RAILA for opposing his planned talks with CJ MARTHA KOOME


Thursday, January 18, 2024 - President William Ruto has reacted angrily to the move by Opposition Leader Raila Odinga to oppose the planned talks between the Executive and the Judiciary.

Speaking in Trans Nzoia County, Ruto accused Raila of being the enemy of progress.

The Head of State indicated that he was surprised why Azimio was opposed to the talks yet it was a viable avenue to iron out the differences with the Judiciary.

Ruto further castigated Raila for opposing dialogue with Chief Justice Martha Koome over graft in the Judiciary yet he was among the leaders defending the institution.

He appealed to Raila to set aside his selfish ambitions and allow the dialogue between the Executive and Judiciary to prevail just like he did with the Azimio and Kenya Kwanza talks.

"So, you have all heard that this Kitendawili guy (referring to Raila) is opposing talks with the Judiciary. I really do not understand why he is opposed to it.”

"When he complained, I agreed to engage him. So why is he opposed to these talks, does that mean Kenya only belongs to him? Ruto posed.

Speaking in Vihiga, Raila insisted that there is no need for the Judicial Service Commission to hold talks with Ruto.

He noted that there is an active case in court that the Executive has appealed and a ruling is set for January 25, and the meeting might compromise the ruling.

Ruto had earlier vowed to lead the tasks with CJ Koome to address corruption in the Judiciary.

The Head of State accused some judicial officers of being used to sabotage his affordable housing and social health care plans.
