CJ Martha Koome in fresh pledge to end case backlogs in courts

By Jackson Kairu in Nairobi

Kenya’s Chief justice Martha Koome has warned judges against delaying cases saying it will no longer be ‘business as usual.” Koome said the only way to restore public confidence in courts is through the expeditious dispensation of justice.

Koome blamed the growing wave of mob street ‘injustice” on suspects on the publics’ lack of confidence in the judicial process. She hit out at some judges who keep dragging cases year after year, making the public lose the trust of ever “finding justice” in courts.

NGO council chairman Mr Stephen Cheboi congratulated Koome for becoming the first female CJ saying her track record in FIDA was enough proof of her resilient excellence in her new docket

The CJ was addressing civil society and members of the NGO Council in a ‘bonding” session called to address challenges facing the judiciary. NGO council chairman Mr Stephen Cheboi congratulated Koome for becoming the first female CJ saying her track record in FIDA was enough proof of her resilient excellence in her new docket.

The CJ appreciated the NGO contribution in “nurturing” her while at FIDA saying she was well equipped to dispense with case overload. She assured that going forward justice would no longer be “delayed” or “denied” warning judges to pull up their socks or face “fire.” Cheboi pledged NGO support for the judiciary to ensure rule of law and equal justice for all without fear or favour.
