Tobiko for other ways of resolving conflict

23 February 2012, 12:04 Omondi Oduor

Director of Public Prosecution, Keriako Tobiko has attributed the backlog of cases in the country’s judiciary to under-utilization of alternative methods of conflict resolution. Tobiko has said that traditional mechanisms of dispute resolution should be emphasized in order to cut short the number of cases brought before the law courts which can be dealt with by village elders or even chiefs.

Speaking in Kisumu while on a mission to meet judges and police prosecutors, the DPP further disclosed that his office is looking into ways of sensitizing the public on the need to embrace these alternative methods.

Tobiko has also decried over the shortage of personnel in his office, saying that as per now there are only 93 state counsels, which is a drop in the ocean, as the country needs 900 more state counsels to raise the number to 993.

As a swift remedy, the DPP revealed that he had requested for the hiring of 350 prosecutors, but has only been granted the green light to hire 66 in the mean time while the rest will be catered for in the next financial year.    

And as a way devolving the judicial system to the grass root level, Tobiko has hinted that plans are currently underway to abolish the positions of provincial directors of public prosecution and replace them with county directors in all the 47 counties.
