Judiciary Transformation Framework 2012 - 2016

Judiciary Transformation FrameworkThe important role that the Judiciary plays in advancing and stabilising modern democracies is a matter of fact. The rule of law is an important determinant of socio-economic development. Kenya’s Judiciary, which is emerging from decades of chronic neglect and ineffective delivery, must steadily remain conscious of its constitutional responsibilities, particularly in superintending a new but still fragile social, political and economic transition engendered by the Constitution.

The promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 heralded a new beginning for most institutions. For the Judiciary, this call was even more urgent. It became imperative for the Judiciary to develop a mechanism for institutional renewal that would enhance public faith and confidence in it. This is the product of that process.

The Transformation of the Judiciary must be seen as part of the transformation of Kenyan society commanded and envisaged by the Constitution. Kenyans voted overwhelmingly in 2010 to establish a free, equal, prosperous and just social order. They entrenched this agenda in the Constitution and entrusted all government agencies with the task of implementing it. This Framework merely seeks to realize these constitutional ideals for the Judiciary.
