The Judiciary has unveiled a new division within the High Court to handle corruption cases.

Chief Justice David Maraga who presided over the launch said it will be integral in accelerating the war on corruption, which is one of the main challenges facing the country.


President Kenyatta repeatedly said he had done everything that was expected of him to ensure the four independent offices had the capacity to carry perform their duties.

He explained that he had gone to the extent of ensuring that a multi-agency team was in place to coordinate the independent offices and even increased funding.

Despite all the efforts, President Kenyatta was concerned that Kenyans were still dissatisfied with the justice system.

He urged the Judiciary to get the Anti-Corruption Unit of the High Court working to clear delayed corruption cases “whether day and night but give Kenyans answers.”

The four agencies are the Judiciary, the Directorate of Public Prosecution, the Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
