Relief as Case against William Ruto Is Dismissed

Deputy President William Ruto will be a relieved man after the high court threw out a case against him.

A petitioner had filed for removal of the Deputy President from office over alleged gross misconduct and neglecting duties.

Justice Anthony Mrima on Thursday ruled that the High Court has no authority to deal with the issues to remove the Deputy President from office.

Justice Mrima said removal from Office of the Deputy President is a Constitutional process provided for in the Constitution.

He said that the process was only supposed to start in the Parliament of Kenya initiated by a lawmaker.

The petitioner had challenged the court that the Deputy President obtains salary from the government without being apart of it.

He claimed the Deputy President was never on official duty and kept using public funds for his personal political gain.

Kenyans supporting the Deputy President have described the petitioner as a hired gun by the DP's competitors.
