Judiciary sets up permanent Appeal Court in Nakuru

Chief Justice Martha Koome has announced the establishment of a permanent Court of Appeal bench in Nakuru to handle cases emanating from the region.

The CJ who spoke during a joint induction exercise for newly appointed COA and ELC Judges in Nakuru revealed that the court which will be the fifth after Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu and Nyeri will enable the court to meet enhanced demand for services.

The milestone comes hot on the heels of the appointment of six new Judges of the Appellate Court by President William Ruto.

During his inauguration 10 days ago, Ruto who committed to supporting the Judiciary increased its budgetary allocation by an additional Ksh 3B for the next five years in a bid to make courts financially independent.

The ultimate objective of the Judiciary under the ‘Social Transformation through Access to Justice’ vision is to have a permanent Court of Appeal in all 47 counties.

The induction programme conducted by the Kenya Judiciary Academy (KJA) led by Director Justice Smokin Wanjala was also attended by the President of the Court of Appeal among other judges.
