Speculation As President Ruto Reveals Why He Appears In So Many Judiciary Functions

President William Ruto has clarified why he is usually active in reforming and attending most of judiciary. He said that his move is to make sure that judiciary deliver justice to the people of Kenya.

"I know there are so many questions as to why I appear in so many judiciary functions, my support to the judiciary is so that the can effectively deliver justice to the people of Kenya." Ruto said.

He said this will help catch up with best practices and respond to the " common sense of basic fairness" .

Delays in cases, he regretted, are more prejudicial than the eventual penalty on conviction.

" The prejudice is compounded where the accused turns out to be not guilty. Custodial sentencing should not be default conviction especially where petty crime is involved, " he said.

The President explained that the use of technology, alternative resolution, diversion and alternatives to prosecution could help achieve justice without burdening the criminal justice system.
