Martha Koome message to the judges is for them to serve the country with distinction. According the CJ, it's clear the court is expecting the appointed magistrates to make rulings based on merits and issues before them.
The Chief Justice Martha Koome has been at the forefront in appointment of judges in key courts to aid in the removal of backlog. However, it's clear this judges as well need offices where they would be serving and courts as well which is scarce at the moment.
The bottom line though is that the Chief Justice Martha Koome is trying to help Kenyans even with her limited resources. It's evidently clear, she has focused on the law, regional balance and merits of the magistrates before appointing them.
