The lawyer averred that the Judiciary received a Sh10 billion grant from the world Bank and is well greased by the country’s Treasury hence mo tangible excuse why a court house stalls for over two years terming it as “crazy.”

A report by East Africa Bribery Index released in August 2017 sowed that the Judiciary is the third most corrupt institution in the land at 48 per cent, only beaten by police and Lands Ministry.

When he took office last year, Chief Justice David Maraga  admitted that corruption is rife in the judiciary but  promised to tackle it head on.
According to him ten percent of the staff in the judiciary including judges and clerks were involved in graft which was tainting the name of the institution.
The onus now lies with the Judiciary and its relevant heads.
