Nairobi - A Naivasha court has moved to dress up inmates who arrive in court wearing tattered clothing by setting up a new wardrobe for them.
court sessions at the Naivasha courts were treated specially after the courts
introduced a wardrobe to help spruce up those wearing tattered outfits.
Stephen Githinji, who is the brainchild behind the noble project, said it was a
way of “motivating” those appearing in court to answers charges facing them.
“Some of the
remands shy away from appearing in court as their clothes are either worn out
following their stay behind bars or are dirty,” he said.
Some of the
remandees, Mr Githinji added, request to be provided with decent wears since
the ones they had been wearing were shabby. “In such instances, we have no
option but to assist,” said the Chief Magistrate.
Mr Githinji and
the court users association, decided to set up a “court wardrobe” to assist the
number of swelling inmates asking to be provided with decent wears to be able
to appear in court.
