Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Martha Koome has said 2023 is the year when all courts will attain the strategic target to ensure that no case remains in a trial court for more than three years.
While delivering her new year’s message to Kenyans, the Chief Justice noted that she strives to lead her fellow officers in the courts so as to keep the commitment to have all cases on appeals heard and determined in one year.
CJ Koome also added that they will lay focus on phasing out, case backlog-enabling vocabulary, and actions. This she says they will do by having every case file tracked to ensure matters are not stuck in court at any stage.
