In an op-ed in the Business Daily, Chief Justice David Maraga said his vision is Sustaining Judiciary Transformation: A Service Delivery Charter. Sustaining Judiciary transformation is predicated on the notion of individual accountability.

Key among the vision is the clearance of case backlog.

“As at December 2016, there were a total of 505,315 cases pending in our court system. Of these, 360,284 have been pending for five years or longer. I promise to utilise the ‘‘service week’’ and the day-to-day hearing arrangements to clear all cases that are more than five years by December 2018,” he wrote.
