Kenyan Judges and Magistrates Urged To Maintain Integrity
President William Ruto has urged the Judiciary to serve Kenyans with integrity and diligence.
According to President Ruto, judges and magistrates 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."
The President challenged the judges — both individually and collectively — to ensure that the Judiciary upholds integrity and is independent and dignified.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
