09 February 2012, 09:48
Nairobi – Chief Justice Willy Mutunga is urging lawyers
in Bungoma to resume work and remain patient as the Judiciary works out
modalities of sending them an additional judge.
Mutunga said it is unfortunate that the lawyers had continued to
paralyse operations at the Bungoma Law Courts as they demand an
additional judge, despite his pleas for their patience..
“As the Chief Justice, I have no reason whatsoever to deny the people
of Bungoma County, or any Kenyan for that matter, their access to
justice,” the CJ said in a statement. “Indeed, I have an obligation to
protect this right. I promise that as soon as we recruit new judges I
will definitely post one to Bungoma.”
