CJ Martha Koome Gives New Directives To All Courts In Kenya Amid Wrangles With The Executive

CJ Martha Koome in the past event

The Kenyan courts were closed after the outbreak of corona virus. The former Chief Justice David Maraga ordered all court proceedings to be done virtually to prevent spread of the virus. Many cases that were pending in several courts were not well attended to by Judges. Most of court workers lost their jobs and were forced to go back home.

After several months of virtual Court hearings, the government allowed a few people to attend the proceedings under strict conditions. This has affected the outcome of many cases that were filled before the outbreak of the pandemic. Chief Justice Martha Koome has come out and ordered the courts to resume their normal operations. This has come as good news to many Kenyans whose cases are still pending.

This happens amid the rivalry between the Judiciary and the Executive. The CJ has been seen on several occasions asking the President to appoint the remaining six Judges who were left out. The Head of State has remained adamant on this issue and this has created bad relationship between the two arms of the government.
