Philomena Mwilu is the acting Chief Justice of Kenya. She took over from retired CJ David Maraga although there were some people trying to block her. The good thing is that she is a strong woman who has been standing firm however much the challenges on her way.
Just recently, Philomena Mwilu was among the Judicial Service Commission panel that interviewed candidates for the Chief Justice position and today, she left Kenyans talking after delivering her latest movement on the operation of courts.
According to Philomena Mwilu, Courts in Kenya are informal to a point where they can even allow use of vernacular!
"The Courts are informal, simple & straightforward. They are not wholly guided by rules of evidence. They can even allow use of vernacular." Said Philomena Mwilu as reported by the Judiciary Kenya.
With that in mind, there may be dramas on the courts as many Kenyans may chose to use vernacular instead of the National languages.
