Chief Justice Martha Koome says the Judiciary is now well-equipped to execute its constitutional mandate for the benefit of Kenyans.

In a statement, the CJ said the institution has received the necessary facilitation to implement different projects and activities.   

She noted that this will see the institution deliver on its promise of an efficient Judiciary to the people of Kenya.

“I am grateful for a remarkable collaboration from our stakeholders that include the Judicial Service Commission, the Executive, Legislature, State Agencies, actors in the justice sector and our development partners,” she said.

Koome also commended the decision by President William Ruto to push for the operationalization of the Judiciary Fund.

She said this has bolstered the institution’s financial independence.

According to Koome, it is through this support that the judiciary has been able to the challenges relating to financial, human resource and infrastructural bottlenecks the institution has been facing.

As per the constitution, article 173 (2), “the Fund shall be used for administrative expenses of the Judiciary and such other purposes as may be necessary for the discharge of the functions of the Judiciary.”
