"We Should Give it to Ruto" Constitutional Lawyer States Ruto's Recent Moves That Should be Lauded

Constitutional Lawyer Gibson Gisore has said that President William Ruto's move to appoint and preside the swearing in of judges shortly after their appointment is a new culture that should be lauded.

Ruto made such a move on the day of his inauguration on September 13th after nominating six judges whose nomination were rejected by his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta, and he presided their swearing in the following day.

Today, December 7th, the president also presided the swearing in of 20 High Court judges who were fronted by the Judicial Service Commission, JSC.

In his interview with KBC Channel One, Gisore said that the move is positive, and should be welcomed.

"As an Advocate, I want to thank the president for the good will towards the Judiciary, it has been a challenge to the previous regimes. Bringing on board more judges brings the services closer to the people. The president making these steps of swearing-in the judges immediately they are nominated is a positive move which we need to welcome," he said.

He went on to express his confidence that the Executive will not 'capture' the Judiciary owing to the closeness the two arms of government have been since Ruto took power.
