The Judiciary has directed its staff to work from home to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus (Covid-19) whose cases have risen to 16 in Kenya.

In an internal memo by Chief Registrar Anne Amadi, the Judiciary – having been hit hard by restrictions on social distancing – says judicial officers will be using electronic communication such as emails to serve litigants.

To facilitate the filing of urgent matters, Ms Amadi directed the heads of stations to post contact details of two judicial officers outside courts.

The contacts details, which will include the name of the judicial officers, mobile phone numbers and email addresses, will be displayed outside the court premises.

The same should also be forwarded to the registrar of magistrate courts to facilitate uploading to the Judiciary’s website.

“Ensure that telephone or email enquiries by the litigants and the public are responded to promptly and appropriately,” directed Ms Amadi while giving the temporary measures taken by the Judiciary to control the spread of the disease.

While directing the heads of stations to notify the public of the directives by placing appropriate notices outside the courts, Ms Amadi stated that the Judiciary will continue providing further guidelines as the situation on Covid-19 unfolds in the country.

She also advised the heads of stations to embrace the new Electronic Case Management Practice Directions, 2020 released by Chief Justice David Maraga recently where practicable under the circumstances.

In issuing the fresh directives, Ms Amadi said the Judiciary staff raised issues regarding their safety as they attend to the court users.

She explained that the directives were made after consideration of the concerns raised by the staff, review of Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe’s statement regarding the seriousness of the pandemic and consultation with the chief justice.

“It is our view that the health and safety of the entire Judiciary family must be prioritised,” stated Ms Amadi.

The memo, which was copied to the chief Justice and his deputy, was addressed to the judges of the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal, High Court, Land court, Labour court, judicial officers and judicial staff.

Since the confirmation of the first case in Kenya, the Judiciary scaled down its operations and has been providing minimal essential services such as filling of urgent matters and plea-taking for serious offences so as to ensure delivery of justice is not completely disrupted.

‘I thought she would marry ‘Jesus’ not a divorcee,’ Pastor Kanyari shades Betty Bayo

Pastor Victor Kanyari has broken his silence after his ex-wife Gospel singer Betty Bayo got engaged during her 33rd birthday last week on Wednesday.

Sharing the news with her fans on social media, the Eleventh Hour crooner posted a cutout picture of her fiancé on one knee putting the engagement ring on her finger with the caption, ‘Taken’.

Speaking to Word Is, the controversial pastor said he is aware that the mother of his two children got engaged but was shocked to learn that the man she is currently dating is a divorcee.

“I thought she was going to marry ‘Jesus’ after all the hateful things she said about me,” he said.

“He is a man who left his family, a wife and two children somewhere. She did not look for Jesus, tell her to marry a ‘Jesus’ kind of a man so she can surprise us not a man who has been used somewhere.”

Kanyari hopes that his children will be well taken care of.

“I have given my children the best life and I promise to take them to the best schools in America. Now that there is another man in her life, I hope he will be chipping in.”

Betty is now planning for a grand wedding and Pastor Kanyari said he is invited.

“I can’t attend her wedding although I am invited. She should continue with her life.”

“I came before him and at least opened some way for him. He can continue with where I left although there were others before me.”

Asked how well he knows Betty’s new bae, Pastor Kanyari referred to him as a broke man.

“He is from Central Kenya, but can’t compete with my level. He is a hungry man, that is the best way I can describe him. I can buy them lunch only that they have not shown up.”

He continued and said that instead of attending to the wedding, he will offer to pay for their honeymoon.

“Hii ni mbio ya farasi na punda. I do not know why she has rushed things since I did not expect her to be with that kind of a man. I expected a different kind of man. I am cuter…”

On the other side, Kanyari says Betty is still his friend and they call each other.

“She calls me anytime she is in a problem or is stressed. I wish her well and we shall meet at the end of all these.”

Pastor Kanyari says he has no hurry in moving on.

Word Is reached out to Betty Bayo who asked us to do a congratulatory story first, which we did.

She then declined to speak anything concerning her engagement.

“I am not ready to speak about it now.”

A woman has accused Nakuru Town MP Samuel Arama of assaulting her.

Amanda Chesiyna, daughter to former deputy commissioner for lands Elisha Chebii, reported the matter at Kaptembwo Police Station.

The incident reportedly happened on Sunday when Chesiyna and Arama were involved in an altercation, which the woman recorded on a video clip shared on social media.

In the clip, Chesiyna is heard shouting as the MP tried to question her about a lorry she claimed was her father’s property illegally taken away.

She accuses the MP of intimidating her as she tried to seize the lorry with the help of two plainclothes officers. Arama denied the assault claims.
