President William Ruto Wednesday urged the Judiciary to serve Kenyans with integrity and diligence.
He noted that it must be impartial, fearless and free of bias.
“It is our desire to have a Judiciary that promotes the values of our nation,” he said.
He spoke on Wednesday during the swearing-in of the Judges of the High Court of Kenya at the State House, Nairobi.
He explained that the declaration under oath of the judges was part of “consolidating the place of Kenya as a democratic country”.
“This confirms to us that we are an independent country and our independent institutions are working.”
Ruto challenged the judges — both individually and collectively — to ensure that the Judiciary upholds integrity, and is independent and dignified.
