Es­tab­lish courts to de­cide on cases be­tween coun­ties

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

It is grat­i­fy­ing to note that Chief Jus­tice David Maraga has cre­ated a de­part­ment to deal with elec­tion pe­ti­tions. There is need to en­sure cases, es­pe­cially dis­putes with the na­tional govern­ment and be­tween the coun­ties them­selves, are cleared with speed. We have had boundary is­sues be­tween the Nandi and Kisumu coun­ties. The Meru and Isi­olo coun­ties are wran­gling over bor­der ar­eas. It will be hard for devo­lu­tion to work. The CJ should es­tab­lish a de­part­ment to deal with such cases.
