Twenty new judges inducted

The newly appointed judges were inducted in a workshop organized by the Kenya Judiciary Academy (KJA), Office of the Principle Judge and Office of the Registrar High Court.

The Judges were taken through Judiciary ICT solutions such as Case Tracking System (CTS) and Virtual Courts among other issues.

The Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu who officially closed the workshop called on the new judges to exercise authority and power efficiently and judiciously in consonance with their solemn oath saying High Court judges hold an extremely consequential jurisdiction.

“You can look forward to a most fulfilling career as a judge; a High Court judge holds an extremely consequential jurisdiction, please exercise it efficiently and judiciously in consonance with the solemn oath you swore,” the DCJ said

She added: “You are judges not only because of your aptitude, but also because of your rectitude. Please, do the right thing at all times. Do not under any circumstance compromise your values. Fidelity to the Constitution and to your oath must be your only moral compass. Do The Right Thing.”

The DCJ also called on them to be deliberate and purposive in honing your skills and knowledge noting that peer review and mentorship is invaluable particularly early on in the career of a judge.

DCJ Mwilu urged the new judges to acquaint themselves with the people-centred justice principles contained in Social Transformation through Access to Justice (STAJ) saying this is important both in regard to their judicial and administrative duties.

She asked them to immediately embark on the Rapid Result Initiative (RRI) and make a substantial and positive impact on case clearance rates at their respective stations.

DCJ Mwilu explained that the Judiciary is committed to strengthening and streamlining the legal and management frameworks of tribunals which provide affordable, speedy, and specialist forums through which disputes in a variety of areas can be resolved.

She urged them to acquaint themselves with the jurisdiction of each Tribunal to enable them, where applicable and appropriate, direct matters to the tribunals for resolution.
