Martha Koome: How Kenya’s Chief Justice is tackling corruption – BBC Africa

In an interview with the BBC to mark 100 days since she took office, Kenya’s Chief Justice Martha Koome says trust in the judiciary has over time been affected, and now she is focusing on presenting to Kenyans a judiciary that they can have confidence in.

Chief Justice Koome, the first woman to hold this position in Kenya, said that it concerns her that cases on corruption in the country and scandals that involve millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money being embezzled, are taking years to be resolved.

She also talked of the judiciary’s preparedness for the presidential elections next year, telling Kenyans that the courts are ready and willing to mediate in a non-partisan way in case any matters arise.

    2. nothing is really happening in the fight against corruption in Kenya… the justice system is broken the leaders care about themselves only its annoying.

    3. Funny the way she talks like someone from the streets

    4. Watching from Israel.. good luck to u all with corruptions..

    5. Nice speech l don't no about Kenyan but Rwanda is among the best country in Africa for this time

    6. A very corrupt country. Starts with law enforcement that work hand in hand with scammers and money launderers,public officers taking bribes for tenders, services that sometimes are free, politicians embezzling public funds and never get jailed, cases that take years in courts and most of the time throw out the list is endless. Kenya is corrupt and unsafe to the core.

    7. Comeback to interview her in one year. She will be just like her brothers and sisters, guaranteed! If she doesn’t join them, the corrupted will get rid of her.

    8. Watching from Cameroon 🇨🇲 the best country in terms of corruption

    9. Watching from Somalia 🇸🇴 Kenya Most corruption country

    10. As a Kenyan let me say that none of these people are going to fight corruption, it's just tv drama, they are corrupt themselves, unless we vote for someone who has never been in politics before, someone whose hands aren't dirty yet maybe we could have a chance with them, not these goons. But we all know Kenyans are going to vote for corrupt leaders knowingly then complain of corruption later as always.
