Defiant Ruto vows to 'root out corrupt Kenyan judges'
President William Ruto

Earlier, BBC reported that judges in Kenya had condemned the country's president for threatening to disobey court orders.

Despite these calls to respect the judiciary, President William Ruto has again pledged to "root out" individuals he believes are sabotaging his government through court orders and injunctions.

While acknowledging that there are honest judicial officers, the president insisted that “no single cent" should be used to "bribe any officer”.

He said that the "impunity of bribing judges so as not to derail, delay, or sabotage Kenya’s imminent transformation will never happen under my watch".

Chief Justice Martha Koome and opposition leader Raila Odinga have accused Mr Ruto of trying to intimidate judges while a group of lawyers have called for protests.
