LSK says judiciary funding cut 'childish and unfortunate'

03 March 2014, 14:19 Wilshere

Nakuru - The Rift Valley Law Society of Kenya (LSK) chair, Kipkoech Ngetich has termed the move by Parliament to slash judiciary funding as “childish and unfortunate”.

Ngetich said that the reduction of funding by KES 500 million will greatly affect service delivery to the public.

“The move by parliamentarians to slash funding to judiciary is childish and unfortunate,” he said.

He said that it is a shame that Members of Parliament only care about their ego instead of representing the interests of Kenyans who elected them.

Speaking in Nakuru town Sunday, Ngetich said that most Kenyans courts are in serious crises since there is no enough space to render services to the public.

He said that Parliament has misplaced priority and that constant politicking against judiciary will not help the mwananchi.

Ngetich said that it is high time that MPs shelved their personal interests and started working towards improving the lives of their electorates.

“Most of our courts are in serious crises because most of them are congested and this is why parliament should rethink their move to reduce funding to the Judiciary,” he said.

Ngetich said that seven counties namely Nakuru, Nyandarua, Narok, Kericho, Bomet, Baringo and Maral are all short of judges.

“Seven counties are in need of judges and it will be difficult to bring in more judges yet there is no more room for expansion,” he said.
