29 July 2015, 08:06 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Chief Justice, Willy Mutunga has set up a Committee to trace and recover Judiciary’s land and other assets lost through illegal and irregular acquisition.

A seven-member committee comprising Judiciary staff and chaired by Justice John Mwera from the Court of Appeal is expected to conduct the investigations within eight months.

Mutunga said government organizations such as the National Land Commission, Ministry of Lands, county governments among other relevant bodies will work with the committee to help in the inquiry and recovery of the property.

“This will ensure that all Judiciary property which was irregularly acquired is recovered or repossessed and put into proper and lawful use by the Judiciary,” said Mutunga.

The committee is mandated to inquire into unlawful allocation of Judiciary assets such as land, buildings among others through verification of documents, establishing the beneficiaries and identifying people responsible for the illegal allocations.

Mutunga reiterated that his institution’s full realization of the Judiciary Transformation Framework (JTF), a five-year strategy blueprint, was constrained by the loss of critical land and buildings to individuals hence need to recover it for citizens to easily access judicial services in all corners of the nation.

Other committee members include; Lady Justice Lydia Achode, Justice Nzioki wa Makau and Lady Justice Olga Sewe and other Judiciary officers such as Chief of Staff in the Office of the Chief Justice Duncan Okello, the Registrar of the Supreme Court Esther Nyaiyaki and officer in charge of Subordinate Courts Caroline Kabucho.
