Chief Justice David Maraga has launched a consumer friendly approach that will turn the fortunes of court business in Kenya.
Not only will the judiciary improve access to justice and finalizing corruption in a few months, the judiciary will also reduce the backlog of cases.
This is a blueprint of how the Judiciary will be run in his tenure.
CJ Maraga will base his leadership on a consumer-friendly approach that will transform and restore public confidence in the Judiciary.
The blueprint will be centered on six key areas: improving access to justice, handling corruption in and out of the Judiciary, improving ICT, reducing cases backlogs, digitization, and leadership and governance.
All these plans are based on transforming the Judiciary, a foundation that was laid by immediate former CJ Dr Willy Mutunga.
He said that he wanted to preside over an institution that is service driven to the common mwananchi.
CJ Maraga has put up a monitoring unit that will look at the progress of implementing the blueprint. This committee will be headed by Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.
