Chief Justice David Maraga has directed all judges and magistrates not to adjourn any court proceedings or wait for any lawyer in particular cases citing delays in hearings and rulings.
Speaking at Bomas of Kenya during the anti-graft summit, Maraga says the delays are created by lawyers who have so many cases and in turn choose to deliberately attend to them selectively.
According to Maraga the accused must now be ready to have other lawyers who will represent them fully and on time failure to which the cases will proceed without their absentee lawyers.
‘’We have all these delays because of lawyers who want to attend to each and every case half –way,and as the Judiciary we are not going to work with the lawyers’ schedule but own schedule.’’ He added.
He further asked the investigative bodies (Directorate of criminal investigation department ,Ethics and anti-corruption commission) to present tangible and concrete evidence for the corruption suspects to be jailed.
