Budget Reduction to affect JTI Activities

The National Treasury recently directed budget reduction on the current budget of the Judiciary due to low performance of revenue and emerging priorities. In a Circular dated 25th September 2017, the Treasury cited repeat of the Presidential election, insecurity, drought response measures and the government’s counterpart funds requirement as some of the reasons for this call. This has consequently affected various Judiciary departments’ budgets, with the Judiciary Training Institute (JTI) budget being revised downwards by about 75 per cent. This has affected most of the activities planned for the Institute and the Judiciary at large in this financial year. As a result, JTI has revised its Training Calendar to downscale trainings to accommodate this development. Some of the major activities affected include sponsorship of judicial officers and staff attending various courses at the Kenya School of Government and the Sports Day which is usually held in May every year. This year, the Annual Sports Day has been removed from the JTI Calendar of events all together owing to budget constraints
