Chief Justice Martha Koome Meets President Ruto at State House

by Daily Trends

Chief Justice Martha Koome Monday morning held a meeting with President William Ruto at State House, Nairobi.

The meeting aimed to end the stand-off between the Judiciary and the Executive arm of the government.

Although the Judiciary and State House have remained mum on the details of the meeting, Daily Trends has established that National Assembly speaker Moses Wetang’ula was in attendance.

President Ruto had earlier on accused unnamed judges of working with cartels to frustrate the government agenda following injunctions on his legacy projects of health and housing.

The President’s remarks sparked an uproar with the Law Society of Kenya holding demonstrations to protest, arguing that the independence of the Judiciary was being threatened.

President Ruto and his allies continued with the attacks, insisting that the head of state had only called for a dialogue over the alleged corruption in the corridors of justice.

CJ Koome then proposed a meeting, saying she was willing to listen to the president so as to find a lasting solution in what was widely opposed by the legal experts led by the Law Society of Kenya.

Last week, the president announced that he was ready and willing to meet the Chief Justice.

The Opposition led by Raila Odinga opposed the meeting saying it compromises judicial independence.
