Chief Justice Martha Koome has challenged the Court of Appeal Judges to expedite the determination of cases before them to reduce a backlog of cases.
Speaking in Nakuru, during the induction workshop of the newly appointed Court of Appeal judges, CJ Koome pointed out that the addition of the judges is a welcome move as some workstation remain dormant due to lack of appeal judges.
“Unfavourable infrastructural systems. We are almost seating on one another. I was pitying the principal judge that she would leave her corner suite and come and seat in a closet. But those are matters we are taking very seriously, as the dream of the judiciary to build the infrastructure so that it is commensurate with the work we are doing. We have identified and have approved a master plan for guiding the infrastructure of the Judiciary to bring it to the level where it should be”, Koome said.
Koome announced that an appeals bench will be established in Nakuru and Nyeri Counties.
