President Ruto Accuses Uhuru’s Government Of Bribing Courts

President William Ruto has said the regime of his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta had set aside a budget to bribe courts and influence the decisions of the judiciary.

Speaking on Tuesday as he was laying a foundation stone for Kapsuswa Affordable Housing Project in Uasin Gishu county, President Ruto told off those opposing his project saying he will not stop pushing to end corruption in the judiciary.

The Head of State revealed that some people were asking him to set aside a ‘bribing’ budget for the judiciary just like the former president used to do.

“Some people are saying that because the previous government had a budget to bribe courts, I should go and come up with a budget to bribe the courts,” Ruto said.

He vowed not to be intimidated by court cases and added that his administration is not ready to give any bribe to judges but rather fight the corruption head-on.

“Do you want your money to be used to bribe the courts? No budget will be made to bribe anyone in the courts. The courts are servants of Kenyans.”

He reassured residents that he would do away with graft in the corridors of justice, adding that no one would be allowed to derail the agenda meant for Kenyans.

Following his recent remarks on corruption in the judiciary, the president said he respects the independence of the judicial system but it does not mean sabotaging the public interests.

In his statements, Mr. Ruto said that anything that undermines the delivery of constitutional rights is undermining the constitution.

According to the president, the projects by his regime are aimed at benefiting the ordinary Kenyans and the orders by the courts are unconstitutional since they serve to disadvantage the will of the people.
