Deputy Chief Justice calls for support of Judiciary

13 May 2014, 16:46

Nairobi - The Deputy Chief Justice, Lady Justice Kalpana Rawal, has urged County Governments to partner with the Judiciary in its efforts to grow infrastructure to cope with the needs of the electorate.

She challenged governors to demonstrate practical support to the Judiciary by allocating funds for the development of court infrastructure in their areas.

“We are under no illusion that to achieve our goals, we require the partnership and support of other institutions like your Government, especially as we endeavour to uplift our infrastructure to address the pressing need for our services in the close to 2 000 villages that make up the 60 wards of Machakos County,” said the DCJ.

She spoke after she paid a courtesy call on the Machakos Governor, Dr. Alfred Mutua.

Rawal was on a tour to inspect service delivery in Machakos and Tawa law courts.

She thanked the Governor for offering the Judiciary land for expansion of courts in Machakos and Mavoko.

Rawal urged the Governor to give similar consideration of land for other court stations in Machakos County.

 Mutua called for insulation of courts against negative forces bent on derailing its mission of delivery of justice.

He challenged courts to strike a blow for justice and integrity, noting that self interest among public servants was still a major hurdle in service delivery.

Rawal called on governors to help with land and resources for the construction of courthouses and, where possible, housing for judicial staff.

She said that the Judiciary was leading a national initiative that brings together various agencies to come up with a policy framework that will provide guidelines to police and judicial officers on matters relating to bail or bond.

“This will create a measure of uniformity and predictability in the grating of bail or bond,” she said – CAJ News.
