Breaking News: CS Kuria Sued for Introduction of Judiciary Services at Huduma Centres: Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria on Sunday accused the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) of misinterpreting the independence of the Judiciary.
He posed,”Dear LSK. You are misinterpreting the independence of the Judiciary. What’s wrong with citizens using Huduma Centres to access Judiciary Services?”
He argued that he was determined to revolutionise access to Judiciary Services through huduma innovation.
CS Kuria was among six others sued by advocate Carolyne Kamende who cited that the move to introduce the services at Huduma Centeres threatened the independence of the Judiciary.
Kamende also sued CJ Koome, Chief Registrar of the Judiciary, Attorney General Justin Muturi, and the Chief Executive Officer at Huduma Kenya.
The petition read,”The Law Society of Keny was not consulted before the Judiciary decided to transfer some of the judicial services to judiciary desks to be domiciled at Huduma Centres.”
The petitioner further listed that the move also went against the Constitution, specifically the section for all public officers to conduct public participation when making and implementing public policy decisions.
This comes after the public service ministry announced introduction of service such as filing civil cases, making inquiries, submitting documents for existing cases, and payments for fines and deposits as from January 29 at Huduma Centres countrywide.
