No arresting traffic offenders, Mutunga orders

02 June 2015, 19:01 William Korir

Nairobi - There will be no arresting traffic offenders, Chief Justice Willy Mutunga has ordered.

Mutunga, in a circular dated 27 May 2015, states that the traffic courts are highly corrupt and inefficient and also, they waste alot of time for Kenyans over small matters.

He stated in the circular that in-order for the courts to be rid of corruption, a few things will be done.

1. Traffic courts must process the payment of traffic fines in open court. The respective courts must ensure that adequate facilities and time must be afforded to the accused persons to pay the fine or cash bail.

2. No accused persons in traffic cases will be locked up without first being granted time, place and adequate facilities to pay fines or bail.

Mutunga also ordered the changes to take effect immediately.

He also asked Kenyans who end up on the wrong end of the stick to report the said officers and magistrates to his office.

The traffic departments of both the judiciary and the National Police Service are known to be some of the most corrupt departments in the public service.
