Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony of the new Kericho County Deputy Governor Lily Chepngetich Ngok, Kericho High Court Judge Asenath Ongeri said they would continue to oversee the case from their temporary buildings.

Judge Ongeri said the judiciary is striving to find new conditions for the Judiciary that will be safe for the public.

“We cannot do without justice as it is our shield and defender and that is why we need an urgent opportunity to set up an art court, so that we can manage the case properly,” said Judge Ongeri.

Kericho Law Courts closed on March 5, 2021 after the National Construction Institute (NBI) condemned the buildings and ordered its residents to leave.

In a statement to the newsroom, acting CJ said the structural deficiencies of the court caused by the renovations made to the building in 2014 made the entire building safer for its residence.

“The report of the investigation revealed structural defects resulting from the renovations made to the building in 2014. The investigative report was sent to the Court on March 3, 2021, with orders that the building be abandoned as a matter of urgency to prevent potential disaster,” Mwilu said.

The most affected courts include the High Court, the Resident Magistrate’s Court, Employment and Labor Relations, and the Environment and Land Court.
