President William Ruto and Chief Justice Martha Koome met today to resolve the ongoing rift between the Executive and the Judiciary.

The meeting, held at State House in Nairobi, was prompted by allegations of corruption against judges, leading to a standoff between the two branches of government.

Speaking about the meeting, State House Press Secretary Emmanuel Talam confirmed the high-level discussions, stating, “President Ruto today morning held a meeting with Chief Justice Martha Koome at State House, Nairobi.”

The conflict arose earlier this month when President Ruto accused the Judiciary of colluding with vested interests to obstruct his government’s reforms. The President’s remarks during a public event in Nyandarua sparked reactions from various quarters.

However, Chief Justice Koome responded by expressing the Judiciary’s readiness to address the President’s concerns, stating, “He might have received information because we have various machinery and agencies for collecting information and we would like to engage him so that he can give us that information.”

In response to the Chief Justice’s statement, President Ruto agreed to engage in talks with the Judiciary, emphasizing, “I want to tell the Chief Justice that I am ready for the talks.” Furthermore, he highlighted the importance of addressing issues related to vested interests, incompetence, and corruption within the government.

 The meeting also included the Speaker of the National Assembly, Moses Wetang’ula, indicating the significance of the discussions in addressing the ongoing conflict. Stay tuned for further updates as the dialogue between the President and the Chief Justice unfolds.
