Both the President, Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Martha Koome, appeared to have put an end to the power struggle between the executive branch and the judiciary. This came about after the president had attempted to win over the Judiciary, all the while the Judiciary had been playing along with the executive.
However, as a result of President William Samoei Arap Ruto's severe warning to the Judiciary, it appears as though the honeymoon period between the two branches of government will be coming to an end sooner than was originally anticipated. K24 TV Kenya reports that Kenyan President William Ruto has criticized the tendency of legal systems pertaining to property and natural resources to give preference to the wealthy at the expense of the poor. "President William Ruto faulted the inclination by judicial systems on natural resources and land to benefit the rich at the expense of the poor," and "President Ruto criticized the way the Judiciary is neglecting the poor while favoring the rich." Tweeted by Kenya's K24 TV station.
