Judiciary urged to prepare for polls

28 January 2013, 12:45 Steve Wambugu

Judicial officers have been urged to become more conversant with the new election act so as to deal with any dispute that might arise during and after the 4th March elections.

The officers have also been challenged to ensure they meet the constitutional deadline in handling complaints and petitions after the polls day.

Speaking on Saturday in Nakuru during the official opening of a two day training for Appeals Judges, Justice Msagha Mbogili said that the judiciary was not able to deal with the 2007/08 election dispute because the public had lost confidence in them.

Justice Msagha noted that it was high time the Judicial system in the country restored confidence among Kenyans during this election period saying they cannot afford to make the same mistake they made in 2007.

Msagha observed that despite the numerous challenges that have been facing, he was happy with the progress they have made in restoring confidence among Kenyans.

At the same time, Principal Magistrate Elizabeth Tanui said that the judicial system was the second biggest office in the land, emphasizing the need to continue working on the reforms in the judicial sector.
