Chief Justice Martha Koome has launched the Kenya Judiciary Academy (KJA) which is determined to improve training for judges, judicial officers and staff.
The KJA is a transition from the Judiciary Training Institute, and will now be under the leadership of Justice Dr. Smokin Wanjala.
According to Koome a modern Research Centre is set to be initiated which will form the basis for the Department of Research and Policy Development.
The success of KJA comes as the government dedicated 50 Acres of land in Ngong Area for construction.
Koome describes the government’s spirit of collaboration as a joint commitment to realizing the constitutional goal of furthering the rule of law and access to justice.
Already an e-learning platform has been launched to enable access to and sharing of knowledge.
CJ Koome was joined by Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka, Attorney General Justice (Rtd) Paul Kihara, the Chairperson, Learning and Development Committee of the JSC Prof. Olive Mugenda, the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Anne Amadi, judges, judicial officers and development partners.
