Recently, there have been reports of congestion in cases filed in Kenyan courts. This is attributed to several factors including inadequacy of qualified personnel such as lawyers and judges to run the court cases. The government through judiciary have invested greatly in establishing courts in various counties and sub-counties.
Kenyans still strain in accessing lawyers to represent them in claiming for justice due to the high cost of hiring them. In some cases, the government provide lawyers for free to represent clients in court although some people prefer private lawyers.
There are high number of land cases reported each day. According to advocates renumeration act, the minimum amount payable to a lawyer in Kenya for representing a client on land and property cases is ksh 35000. For a case where a buyer wants to access legal formalities before buying a land he or she is advised to budget 1-2 percent of the purchase price of the property.
