Kenya : ICJ conducts mission on judicial independence

The ICJ is conducting a 5-day mission to evaluate Kenya’s judicial situation in light of international standards on the independence of the judiciary.
The Mission will be led by the Honourable Justice Dr. George W. Kanyeihamba of the Supreme Court of Uganda. The other mission members are prominent Nigerian lawyer Mr. Clement Nwankwo and ICJ Lawyer Cecilia Jimenez. The ICJ-Kenya will be represented by Mr. Philip Kichana. As the government addresses real issues of corruption in the judiciary and the country discusses constitutional reform, it is essential that the judiciary emerges as an independent and impartial branch of the State. The mission will meet with members of the judicial, executive and legislative branches of government, the legal profession, the Law Society, legal academics and civil society.
