Inmates boycott court sessions
03 July 2013, 11:46
Court cases failed to take place at the Nakuru and Molo law courts for the second day after remandees from the Nakuru G.K prison continued boycotting court sessions.
A spot check by the media at the Nakuru law courts revealed that for the second day, prison warders arrived in court without remandees.
The inmates are accusing certain magistrates of denying them bonds for petty offences and deferring hearing of their cases.
On Tuesday afternoon, the remandees declined to be addressed by the Nakuru resident judge Anyara Emukule and instead insisted that the Chief Justice address their plight.
At the moment, there are only two judges at the Nakuru high court dealing with the inmates' cases.
Judge William Ouko was promoted to an appellate judge while judge Hellen Omondi is hearing petitions at the Bungoma law courts.
The two were serving in Nakuru before.
