Chief Justice Martha Koome presided over the launch of a permanent station for the Court of Appeal in Nakuru, marking a huge milestone in addressing the access-to-justice gap in the appellate court in the Rift Valley region.
The CJ said that in line with the Judiciary’s vision of #STAJ, the Judiciary is committed to continuously making interventions to ensure the justice system is accessible, cost-effective, timely and efficient.
This is the fifth permanent appellate bench after Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa and Nyeri, with the sixth expected soon in Eldoret.
“I urge the Rift Valley Law Society Branch and other court users to actively cooperate and work with the Judges to ensure that this target of expeditious resolution of appeals is realised,”
She added: “We are collaborating with counties and the Council of Governors to build partnerships that will address the ‘justice needs’ of our people.”
