Giving banks a legal hand

The judiciary has been the bane of banks, taking forever to get things cleared. You can apply for a case against a debtor today and be told the next hearing date available is in 2008.

Something is very wrong when a case can’t be heard for almost ten months. There’s enough blame to go round – complex cases heard using archaic processes, too few judges, judges who take too long to clear cases, lazy/crafty lawyers who seek a postponement for any reason to keep cases going on forever etc.

The Chief Justice tried to give a helping hand in his gazette notice to stop one delaying avenue where matters relating to a case are presented in different courtrooms around the country. The most visible case has been the ongoing Charterhouse Bank saga which has been in courthouses in Nairobi, Malindi and Eldoret leading to conflicting legal positions.

    Leave alone those ones.. there are cases which go on for a very long time.. i have a rela with a case in court since 1985.. Bado it’s not been solved. And then they put so much cash to these cases and yet they all know hey will never get solved.. Like e.g, how many times have we reviewed the Ouko murder and The Githongo one..
    I agree on the fact of lazy/crafty lawyers and corrupt judges too.. I think that’s the major cause of all this

    Sue: Court is a nightmare for individuals and a money waster for clients even without politics attached – injunctions, pleas, appeals, break in orders, stays, etc. and for each a court process, you have to pay lawyer & court fees
