Malindi - Chief Justice Willy Mutunga on Friday directed judges countrywide not to go for the August vacation to clear pending criminal matters and reduce case backlogs.
In a plea to the judges, Mutunga said that the move would show Kenyans their commitment, by dealing with criminal matters that had delayed in court for long, The Standard reports.
The CJ made the remarks at the new Malindi Law courts during the inauguration of the new court of appeal in Malindi, that a faction of the Mombasa Law Society of Kenya boycotted to protest against the location of the appeals court.
