The Judiciary is set to roll out a new system countrywide to encourage Kenyans to embrace alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.
Deputy Registrar of the Judiciary in charge of the Family Division Wilson Radin’g urged Kenyans to embrace the alternative dispute resolution approaches, under the newly launched Annexed Mediation Programme, spearheaded by the Judiciary.
He was speaking at the Kisumu High Court today during a public sensitisation forum on the Judiciary’s new programme.
Mr. Radin’g said the initiative had begun to help in reducing the number of cases pending in court, as well as the duration of the same cases as compared to the formal judiciary procedures.
The Deputy Registrar noted that so far, hundreds of cases had been resolved in Nairobi, using annexed mediation strategy, and Judiciary was targeting to spread similar initiative across all the 47 counties.
