President William Ruto will on Wednesday preside over the swearing-in of six judges, two Court of Appeal judges, and another two Environment and Land Court judges.
The ceremony is in line with his Tuesday promise to the Judiciary where he also signed an executive order appointing the six judges who had been appointed three years ago under the Uhuru administration.
“It is our commitment to have a Judiciary that is adequately resourced to serve all Kenyans justly and impartially. That way, we will be safeguarding our democracy.
