CJ Martha Koome asks lawyers to stop delaying cases in courts

Chief Justice Martha Koome has urged lawyers to abandon the tendency of calling for unnecessary adjournments that delay the hearing of cases.

Koome said the problem of case backlog and delayed delivery of justice were a result of unnecessary adjournments.

The CJ also challenged advocates to contribute socially beneficial services to the society while being part of the process of developing constitutionally decreed indigenous social jurisprudence by availing arguments to judges and judicial officers.
