CJ Maraga Wins Treasury Restores Judiciary’s 2019/2020 Budget

In a letter to the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), Chief Registrar Anne Amadi indicated that the implementation of all approved activities would proceed as planned.“We wish to confirm that the National Treasury has restored the Judiciary Recurrent and Development budget FY 2019/2020,” the memo reads.This comes just days after LSK, through its president Allen Gichuhi, sued the National Treasury complaining that the move not only interferes with the independence of the Judiciary but also the right of the public to access services rendered.The budget cut saw a drastic reduction of Ksh.1.49 billion from the recurrent expenditure and Ksh.1.4 billion from the development expenditure.

Treasury has restored the Judiciary budget for the year 2019/2020 after the Law Society of Kenya won a case in High court.

A letter from the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary confirms the reinstatement for the recurrent and development budget.

“We wish to confirm that the National Treasury has restored the Judiciary Recurrent and Development Budget for FY 2019/2020.” reads the letter from Anne A. Amadi.

Earlier, the Treasury slashed Judiciary’s recurrent and development budget by 50%, citing the need to cut costs.

In late October, Justice James Makau ordered Treasury to halt the cuts as some tribunals closed shop. The decision came after substantial consideration, acknowledging that the cuts deterred justice. This was LSK’s first victory.

The recent court ruling will guarantee continuity in operations of some tribunals and stations, which earlier shut down.

Additionally, an internal memo stamped 7/11/2019 acknowledges that implementation of work plans should proceed as planned.

“… Judiciary’s Recurrent and Development Budget for FY 2019/20 has been restored. Additionally, the budget for the half-year been uploaded in IFMIS as per approvals by the National Assembly. Authority to Incur Expenditure (AIE’s) for the Stations and Tribunals are being processed and will be out in the shortest time possible,” reads the Internal Memo.
