After the seven-judge bench unanimously confirmed William Ruto’s election as president-elect, Chief Justice Martha Koome praised the independence of the judiciary and congratulated William Ruto on his win. 

On Wednesday, September 7, the President of the Judiciary spoke at a funeral in Mwiteria, Imenti North, Meru county. He defended the supreme court’s decision to keep institutions’ independence. 

The Chief Justice claims that other world leaders are taking notes from Kenya’s system of leadership and governance because of the lack of conflict between the branches of government there.

It was only a few days before her comments that the highest court in the land had ruled against all petitions challenging Ruto’s win as being without substance. All of the judges agreed that the petitions submitted by Raila Odinga, the presidential candidate for the Azimio la Umoja party, and Martha Karua, his running partner, did not meet the requirements for the annulment of the August 9 Presidential Election.
