Ruto: I am ready for dialogue with Judiciary, Legislature

President William Ruto has stated that he is ready for talks with the leadership of the two other arms of government to address allegations of corruption, vested interests and what he described as sabotage of his administration’s work.

The President on Tuesday said that as the head of the executive, he was ready to take the lead, noting that the proposed talks should involve the Chief Justice as well as the speakers of both the National Assembly and Senate.

“Yesterday, the Chief Justice called for talks and I want to say that I welcome the talks. On January 2, I committed that we needed a conversation on how to deal with corruption. We will not accept the monster of graft to sabotage government programs just because of laxity of some state officers or saboteurs who don’t want us to change this country,” the President said in Tinderet, Nandi County.

He went on: “I said early this year that this is the year that we will firmly deal with graft in our country. I want to tell the CJ, that I am ready for talks that will bring together the leadership of the legislature, executive, and judiciary. I am ready for talks on how to deal with vested interests, incompetence, and especially corruption in any arm of government because it is derailing and sabotaging the progress and the potential of our country.”

On Monday, Chief Justice Martha Koome called for a meeting with the Head of State to discuss issues that the executive has been raising concerning alleged corruption in the judiciary.

President Ruto and other Kenya Kwanza leaders have on several occasions accused unnamed persons of using ‘corrupt judges’ to stall programs initiated by his administration, that include healthcare and affordable housing projects.

On Tuesday, the Head of State, who has spent considerable time in his Rift Valley backyard since the turn of the year stated that some unnamed ‘corrupt’ individuals were rushing to courts to obtain orders to prevent being charged for crimes they have committed.

“We want to deal with those who want to maintain the status quo in the housing program; who don’t want to make it possible for every Kenyan to get affordable health care or mama mboga and boda boda to own a house and to hold system hostage by bribing judicial officers and hiring expensive lawyers. We are going to have this conversation and if the judiciary is ready, then I am also ready and I am confident that the legislature is also willing to have this talks,” the President stated.

Dr Ruto who launched several projects in his Nandi county visit also said that he is determined to ensure the roll-out of Universal Health Coverage to reduce the cost of health care.

The Head of State was accompanied by his deputy Rigathi Gachagua, Governor Stephen Sang (Nandi), senators Samson Cheragei (Nandi), Jackson Mandago (Uasin Gishu), Leader of Majority in the National Assembly Kimani Ichung’wah and a host of MPs who included Nandi Woman Representative Cynthia Muge, Paul Biyego (Chesumei), Julius Melly (Tinderet), Marryane Kitanny (Aldai), Abraham Kirwa (Mosop), Josses Lelmengit (Emgwen) and Julius Kitur (Nandi Hills).

Mr Ichung’wah, who is also the Kikuyu MP, asked the Chief Justice to expedite graft cases touching on judicial officers, even as he accused the Judicial Service Commission of defending those he termed as ‘corrupt judges’.

“Our Chief Justice informed the public that they have dealt with 13 cases out of the 72 cases against judges and asked us to take more cases. We want to ask her to expedite those 50 cases first before we can file more complaints before the JSC,” he stated.

At the same time, the President disclosed that the recruitment of 2,000 new tutors for Technical Vocational Training Institutions (TVets) will start next week and they will be expected to report within 90 days to respective TVETs to support skill development.

“The government will continue investing more resources to support the development of technical skills for our youth. I want to appeal to parents to allow their children, especially the Form Four leavers to join TVETs and later national polytechnics so that they can enrol in our universities,” said Dr Ruto.
