Chief Justice Martha Koome has instructed Judges to hear cases of hate speech that will be presented in court in less than three months.
Speaking in Eldoret after meeting magistrates and other court officials from the region , the Chief Justice said the negligence of stakeholders in court has contributed to the backlog of cases in courts.
“Hate speech cases that are still in court and those that are yet to come should be solved in less than 3months” said the chief justice while speaking to the press.
Koome reiterated that more courts and judges will be employed during the electioneering period to reduce chaos and concussion in courts.
“We also planning to start more local courts and employ new judges to ensure these electioneering period things run smooth and justice prevail,” she added.
At the same time chief justice Koome insisted that, no judge should be independent to stand alone, but instead should put efforts together with the county governments to ensure smooth running of justice to Kenyans.
