A number of president William Ruto's associates who had been fighting protracted legal battles in recent years have finally begun to experience freedom as several cases seem to be fast being dismissed.
After the government entities or people who brought the cases withdrew them or reached out-of-court settlements, the Ruto friends who had been protesting what they deemed to be politically motivated persecution were ultimately guaranteed freedom.
Communication Authority of Kenya Chairperson Mary Wambui, widely known as "Wambui Wa Ruto," who contributed significantly to Uhuru Kenyatta's presidential campaigns in 2013 and 2017, is among those who have also experienced freedom.
The Kenya Revenue Authority and she have agreed in secret to abandon a multibillion lawsuit that was against her, according to a report in The Standard. She has been in a legal battle with KRA over an unpaid tax matter for the majority of Uhuru's second term.
In the covert agreement, Wambui has agreed to pay an undisclosed sum of money in exchange for KRA writing to the director of public prosecution to request that the case be dropped.
