Communications and Multimedia Appeals Tribunal members sworn in

Deputy Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Paul Ndemo today presided over the swearing in ceremony of the Chairperson and six Members of the Communications and Multimedia Appeals Tribunal. The Chairperson is Ms. Rosemary Kuria and Members are Ms. Vivienne Namadoa, Mr. Manyura Tiberius, Ms. Patience Nyange, Ms. Ruth Okowa, Mr. Timothy Toroney and Dr. Samson Kitonyi.

Also sworn in was a Member of Legal Education Appeals Tribunal, Stephen Gitonga who has been re-appointed for another term.

In her maiden speech, Rosemary Kuria, the Chairperson of the Communications and Multimedia Appeals Tribunal appreciated the heavy responsibility bestowed on the Tribunal and urged the members to approach the opportunity given to them for the next three years with humility. “Let us know that it is not about us, it is about the people who will be bringing their disputes for us to make decisions on their plight,” she stated.

Ms. Kuria reminded the Members that “Article 159 of the Constitution says judicial authority is derived from the people and shall be exercised by courts and tribunals. Our role is therefore to facilitate access to justice to all parties. Everyone has a right to fair hearing before an impartial Tribunal.”

While congratulating the newly sworn in officials, Deputy Chief Registrar of the Judiciary expounded on the role of tribunals in the justice system. “Tribunals are one of the mechanisms established to offload cases from the mainstream justice system. They deal with thematic matters and are expected to deliver justice expeditiously. Their procedures are also simpler and less technical than courts.” He called upon them to serve with dedication.
