President of the Supreme Court of Kenya Chief Justice Dr Mutunga fights corruption head-on.

The newly appointed Chief Justice of Kenya’s Supreme Court – the Highest Court in the land, Dr Willy Mutunga is a no-nonsense man. He has ordered forensic audit on Milimani court expansion – modernising project which was started during his predecessor Justice Evans Gicheru’s term in office. He has put a stop to any further work on the premises and has warned the workers in the courts and the public to be alert at all times because the building can collapse due to poor structure. It is reported that Dr Mutunga has described the state of the building to be in a “sorry state of disrepair”.

It is because he has smelled corruption in the corridors there. The building is also beginning to give into pressure of unknown kind, that can only be connected with poor planning. The newly refurbished building is beginning to fall apart with roofs beginning to get caved, a danger to all the employees and any other persons that goes there to do business.

According to the Kenya media, the exquisite finishing of the newly-refurbished courts as seen from outside seem to be the direct opposite of the interior.  The building now poses grave dangers to staff and public as a result of myriad structural malfunctions that include broken sewers, ceilings caving in, unfinished or plain poor workmanship, a VIP lift that stopped functioning five months after commissioning and lack of internet facilities.”

Hopefully, the forensic audit will point out what went wrong and also bring to book the culprits who may have chewed the money through corrupt means. Building projects can easily be manipulated by hungry and corrupt supervisors. It is simply a matter of investing in overpriced poor material and pocketing the money.

Such people are a danger to the society because they do not care for the lives of the incoming occupants whose lives are put in danger this way.

One thing known is the fact that before a building is put into use, a government inspector does the inspection and issues a certificate to that effect approving the building. If, in this case, that was done then the person who did so should be investigated for his role in the whole mess.

It is not only the buildings that the new Supreme Court Chief Justice has his eyes on. He has in the last few months started cleaning the courts and the public is happy with his efforts to get rid of corruption within the judiciary. If he continues the way he does, Kenyans will soon be proud of their judiciary and the country will also gain international respect as a country with a trustworthy judicial system.
