The Judiciary has come out to refute claims that it was compromised by President William Ruto to rule in his favor in Raila Odinga’s petition challenging his victory in the 2022 presidential election.

In a notice, the Judiciary had flagged reports circulating on social media of Supreme court judge Isaac Lenaola receiving a Ksh 246 million bribe at a hotel in Karen as fake.

The Judiciary urged Kenyans to ignore the posts that had been altered to resemble the cover of a local daily newspaper.

Kenyans were urged to disregard the fake posts and desist from sharing them after going viral on social media.

As per the fake posts, it was purported that the bribe was given to the judge in dollars whichs equates to USD 1.7 million at a hotel in Karen by Deputy speaker Gladys Shollei.

It was also alleged that the incident was captured on CCTV with the story running as an investigative news story.

“A CCTV footage we exclusively obtained from the Karen Blixen Hotel’s car park captures the supreme court judge collecting the money in cash from Uasin Gishu Women Rep, ” claimed the fake newspaper post.

The alleged fake reports claimed that the bribe was in connection with supreme court decision over the 2022 presidential petition.

In the 2022 petition filed by the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, the seven supreme court judges unanimously upheld the win of president William Ruto in the 2022 polls.

Notably, Shollei was among the lawyers who were part of Ruto’s legal team of 54.

The Uasin Gishu Woman Representative was also an agent for Ruto in the presidential elections and oversaw verification of results at the Bomas of Kenya.
