Elders and residents of Samburu County have a reason to smile after the Judiciary incorporated them into the justice system to solve many issues that have been affecting the residents of the county.
Speaking in Maralal during the launch of the Alternative Justice System, Chief Justice Martha Koome observed that the judiciary is committed to delivering justice to all the people in Kenya by embracing working modalities that will ensure justice prevails as much as possible.
She observed that the elders in the Samburu community continue to play a leading role in handling disputes especially those that touch on families and the wellbeing of the community.
The Alternative Justice System that we have launched will save many community members from the long bureaucratic process of seeking justice in avenues that are respected and familiar to the community members and other stakeholders in the justice system’ Koome said.
At the same time, the CJ opened the Maralal High Court sub-registry to serve the local community and save them from the cost of traveling long distances for court services outside the county.
After the gazettement of the registry, the High Court will be able to sit at Maralal and conduct its business as usual.
Residents of the county also benefited from the launch of an e-filling system in the county as a move to digitize court processes and make the work easier for parties seeking services of the judiciary. This means petitioners; respondents, lawyers, and judicial officers will be able to conduct some judicial activities online as is the case in many other parts of the country.
‘The judiciary is keen to embracing technology to improve the efficiency of our justice system, the launch of e-filling in Samburu has numerous benefits to the residents of this great county’ the CJ added.
The county government of Samburu led by Governor Lati Lelelit expressed commitment to supporting the judiciary in these initiatives that are aimed at taking justice closer to the people.
Previously, residents of Maralal have been traveling for approximately 200kms in search of services of the high court. A situation that made the justice process expensive and unreachable to many stakeholders.
The Judiciary is established primarily to dispense efficient and effective justice to the people as envisaged in Article 159 of the Constitution.
