Doldol needs a mobile court

23 August 2012, 16:56 James Kabotia

The Nanyuki Law Courts has recommended to the Chief Justice Willy Mutunga to put up a mobile court at Doldol market in Laikipia North noting that the place is very far from Nanyuki town, about 60 km on rough road.

Speaking during the Judicial Marches Week held at central park grounds in Nanyuki town on Wednesday, Nanyuki Chief Magistrate Jessie Nyagah said that members of public have been experiencing a lot of hardship to go for their cases in Nanyuki.

“Whenever residents of Laikipia North appear for their cases, they are forced to sleep over in town because the distance is so far on the rough Nanyuki-Doldol road”, said Nyagah.

The Chief Magistrate also requested Justice Mutunga to post another magistrate in the station in a bid to complete the increased workload in criminal cases within a month.

Nyagah also said that the Law Court has been operating with only two prosecutors which has been a big hardship to the court and the current prosecutors themselves.

The court further requested for a children’s court and proper cells for children and women.

Nyagah has also urged members of public who filed civil matters and went to sleep that the court has been dismissing cases where parties have not taken any action over them for a period of one year.

“In the month of July alone we dismissed 37 cases and this is a wakeup call for those who still have interests in their cases to revive them”, continued the Chief Magistrate.

The Judicial Marches Week in Nanyuki was graced by the Resident Judge of Nyeri High Court Joseph Sergon.

The occasion was also attended by judicial staff officers from Nyeri and Nanyuki, the Laikipia East OCPD and the Laikipia Central District Commissioner.

The Nanyuki Law Courts assure Justice Sergon that it has fully embraced the judiciary transformation framework which was launched by the Chief Justice on June.
