Following his inauguration, President William Samoei Ruto outlined a bagful of goodies for the country's top court commending them for standing firm in deciding the just concluded August 9 presidential petitions.

In his speech, he appointed six judges Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Aggrey Muchelule, Weldon Korir, Evans Makori, and Elizabeth Omange who were rejected by retired President Uhuru Kenyatta after he questioned their character as well as integrity issues.

In regards to the issue, the head of state is today set to oversee their swearing in process for them to start their duties with immediate effect.

As per his remarks, the commander in chief indicated that the move will cement the place of Kenya as a country anchored in democracy and rule of law.

On his other promise to the judiciary, President Ruto vowed that he will scale up the Judiciary Fund by allocating Sh.3 billion annually for the next five years.

The move will help to increase the number of small claims courts from the current 25 to 100
