President Ruto pledges continued support to the Judiciary to serve Kenyans better and combat corruption

President Ruto pledges continued support to the Judiciary to serve Kenyans better and combat corruption.

Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony of 20 newly appointed judges of the High Court at State House, on Tuesday, May 14, President Ruto noted that an effective and efficient judiciary is good for the country. 

“Our bottom-up economic transformation agenda acknowledges the critical role of governance institutions, and in particular, the place of a strong and effective judiciary in Kenya’s progress and inclusive prosperity.

An independent judiciary, an effective executive, a progressive legislature, an open civil society, and a vigilant media are not mutually exclusive; instead, they share a mandate to serve the people and should facilitate each other’s efforts,” Ruto stated. 

President Ruto said that funding for the justice and law and order sector to combat corruption and promote accountability has increased.

“To support these efforts, we have increased budgetary allocations to sectors combating corruption, and promoting justice and accountability since the 2022/23 financial year, from Kshs 87b to 108 billion in the current financial year.

“Some of these resources contribute to the judiciary’s infrastructure development, including the construction of courts, staff recruitment, and capacity building for law enforcement agencies. I am happy that the establishment of small claims courts across the country has brought justice closer to the people and resulted in a significant increase in the number of resolved cases,” remarked Ruto. 

President Ruto expressed confidence that the three arms of government; Executive, Legislature, and Judiciary would continue engaging in a progressive manner and finding consensus in ways that serve the citizens better.
