President William Ruto on Monday December 5th came face to face with Law Society of Kenyan (LSK) president Eric Theuri who sued him over nomination of principal secretaries (PSs). While speaking during the launch of 2021/2022 Administration of Justice in Kenya Annual Report, Ruto welcomed decision by Theuri to sue him maintaining that nobody was above the law.
Ruto teased the LSK boss over losing the case against him but pointed out that he would have accepted a ruling which declared the nomination unlawful. Ruto also expressed his happiness towards the LSK boss for not threatening to hold demonstrations because he did not win the case.
The head of state also responded to critics who questioned his close relationship with Chief Justice (CJ) Martha Koome. He maintained that he is only offering support to the courts as his mandate to uphold rule of law and protect the constitution. According to Ruto he has never made any call to ask judiciary to do anything.
In other words, the head of state only offer support to judiciary so that it can effectively deliver justice to people of Kenya.
