Residents of Nyandarua County have for many years been forced to travel to Laikipia and Nakuru counties to get justice from the courts.
However this narrative could change with the establishment of a High court in Ol-Kalou town, whose construction Chief Justice David Maraga has pledged to fast-track .
Maraga who toured Nyandarua County said the construction of the 350 million ultra-modern high court set to kick off January next year on a three acre plot donated by the county government, easing the burden endured by Nyandarua County residents of travelling for long distances for the hearing of their cases.
The construction of the high will bring to two the number of courts in Nyandarua County after another one was put up at Engineer town last year.
Maraga said proper arrangements are being made by the judiciary to post staff at the courts to ensure residents receive quality service.
The Chief Justice was accompanied by Nyandarua Governor Daniel Waithaka and county speaker Ndegwa Wahome who called the Chief Justice to post a lands and magistrate court in the area.
