Uasin Gishu County Governor Jonathan Bii’s recent meeting with Chief Justice Martha Koome is a positive sign of the county’s commitment to implementing and advocating for the Alternative Justice System (AJS). The AJS is a vital tool for resolving disputes quickly and fairly, and it can help to reduce the backlog of cases in the formal court system.
The Judiciary’s keen interest in collaborating with the county government to expand its reach in Uasin Gishu is also encouraging. This partnership is essential for ensuring that all residents have access to justice, regardless of where they live in the county.
Chief Justice Koome’s visit to Uasin Gishu also highlighted the county’s efforts to promote environmental conservation. Her flagging off of 976,000 tree seedlings to various sub-counties is a commendable initiative, and it is a reminder of the importance of trees in protecting our planet.
The partnership between Uasin Gishu County and the Judiciary has the potential to make a significant impact on the lives of all residents of the county. By working together, the two institutions can promote justice, environmental sustainability, and economic development.
