As a number of cases appear to be dropping quickly, a number of president William Ruto's allies have finally begun to experience freedom after enduring significant legal battles over the past few years.
This occurs after the individuals or government agencies that initiated the cases either withdrew them or struck out-of-court settlements to finally guarantee freedom to the Ruto allies, who have been protesting what they call politically instigated persecution.
Mary Wambui, alias "Wambui Wa Ruto," chairperson of the Communication Authority of Kenya and a major financier of Uhuru Kenyatta's presidential campaigns in 2013 and 2017, is one of the people who has also experienced freedom.
The Standard reports that she and the Kenya Revenue Authority have secretly agreed to drop a multi-billion dollar case against her. The case involving unpaid taxes, over which she has fought KRA for most of Uhuru's second term in office.
Wambui has agreed to pay an undisclosed sum as part of the covert deal, and KRA has written to the director of public prosecution to request that the case be dropped.
