Mombasa, KENYA: Chief Justice David Maraga has called upon Kenyans with corruption evidence against judicial officers to come forward and report to the Judicial Service Commission.
Speaking in Mombasa County on Wednesday, Chief Justice Maraga accepted that the judicial officers sometimes have issues of integrity but requested anyone with evidence to come forward.
“Sometime we have issues of integrity but don’t paint all of us as corrupt we are doing our very best and we want your support,” said Maraga.
Maraga warned his staff involving themselves in corruption and said that the Judicial Service Commission will take legal action against them.
He was speaking to court users, LSK and judicial services officers in Mombasa after laying a foundation stone on the construction of the Mombasa Justice tower at a cost of Sh.445 Million.
He thanked the County government of Mombasa for providing land in the six sub-counties for the construction of courts in order to ensure people can access justice at a lower cost.
“Judiciary is very neutral and we go to every governor’s office despite political party, today I was honoured to pay a courtesy call to the governor of Mombasa Ali Hassan Joho and we discussed a lot of issues,”Said Chief Justice Maraga.
He finished his three days tour at the coast which started on Monday in Kwale.
