The County Government of Nakuru has plans to work with the Judiciary to set up courts in sub-counties.
The Nakuru County Deputy Governor Dr Erick Korir said this when he met officials from the Judicial Service Commission at the Nakuru County Headquarters on Wednesday morning.
The delegation was led by High Court judge Aggrey Muchelule and included the LSK representative to the JSC Tom Ojienda. Also present were Justice Anthony Ndung’u of Nakuru Law Courts, Godfrey Oduor from the Judiciary, Nyawira Kinyua, Bernard Ochieng and David Waga from the Judicial Service Commission.
Mr.Stephen Nguitui from the County legal office was also present.
The Deputy Governor says that as a county, Nakuru appreciates the important role played by the Judiciary in enabling it to realize its mandates. He also thanked the judiciary for setting up a county court that he says has helped settle matters expeditiously.
The judiciary is also in the process of putting up a Kshs. 347 million court in Nakuru which is 70% complete. Once complete, the DG says it will attract investors into the County due to the ensuing rise in demand for housing by judicial officers.
