Chief Justice Martha Koome has launched the first autonomous Alternative Justice System (AJS) Centre in Africa.

The AJS Centre is an initiative of the Inter-faith Christian Forum in collaboration with the Judiciary and the County Government of Nakuru.

CJ Koome acknowledged that the establishment known as the ‘House of Reconciliation’, AJS Centre is the first of its kind in the entire region and an innovation that will be immensely useful to the communities in Nakuru and Kenyans at large.

“It is a recognition that mediation and reconciliation processes, including those conducted within our alternative justice mechanisms, are central for the resolution disputes given that they are collaborative processes that foster long-term relationships,” said Koome.

The CJ observed that the Centre will contribute to the creation of a just social order, prioritise reconciliation and foster peaceful co-existence in communities.

“This novel innovation becomes a beacon of good practice and a symbol of the multi-door access to justice,” she said.

The launch event was attended by key figures, including the Deputy Chief Justice of Uganda, Hon. Justice Richard Buteera, and the Deputy Governor of Nakuru County,David Kones.
