Chief Justice David Maraga has launched the Children’s Service Week in a move aimed at clearing backlog of cases involving children countrywide.
CJ Maraga says that the exercise demonstrates the judiciary’s commitments in looking into the gaps that impede efficient delivery of justice to children who are either in conflict with the law or in contact with the law.
Speaking Monday morning during the launch at Makadara law courts, the CJ said that the under the program, the judiciary will handle over 2000 Criminal Cases involving Children.
Maraga said during the week, justice actors will engage to explore different and concrete ways of fast-tracking justice for the Kenyan people.
The exercise will be coordinated by the National Council on the Administration of Justice –NCAJ- taskforce that was formed the on 29th January 2016 by former Chief Justice Dr. Willy Mutunga.
