Kenya’s Judiciary Demonstrates Against the President

Dozens of legal professionals took to the streets of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, in a demonstration organized by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) to protest President William Ruto’s threats to defy court orders. The march, which started at the Supreme Court and head towards the president’s office, is aimed at addressing concerns raised by the president’s recent statements. President Ruto faced severe criticism last week when he publicly declared his intention to disregard court orders, asserting that some unnamed judges had allegedly colluded with opposition figures and “cartels” to obstruct his administration’s projects.
