President William Ruto has said that he has no problem if anyone takes him or his government to court.
Speaking on Monday, December 5, during the launch of the National Council on the Administration of Justice (NCAJ) annual report, the Head of State said that everyone can be wrong or right.
President Ruto spoke even as he recognized the presence of LSK president Eric in the event, who had sued him over his PS appointments.
The Head of State sarcastically said that he was happy because Theuri was not threatening to organize any demonstrations because he did not win the case.
"I am pleased to see my friend Eric Theuri here who took me to court the other day when I made some appointments and I appreciate that it is how the wheels of justice operate. I am happy that he is not threatening to organize any demonstrations because he did not win the case," President Ruto said.
"It is okay to take me to court. I have no problem. Nobody is an angel. All of us can be wrong or right but we leave it to the judiciary to decide whether one is guilty or innocent,” he added.
The Head of State further clarified that he had not controlled the judiciary by attending many judiciary events.
He maintained that he was supporting the judiciary to ensure that it delivers justice effectively to Kenyans.
"I know there’s a discussion as to why I appear in too many of the functions of the judiciary. They can confirm to you that I have never put a telephone call to anybody to ask them to do nothing. My support for the judiciary is so that they can effectively deliver justice to the people of Kenya," the president said.
