Milimani Law Courts To Be Closed From Friday


Judiciary has issued a memo on closure of Milimani Law Courts for 11 days with effect from Friday, August 26.

This is to pave way for the hearing of presidential election petition set to begin on Friday.

“Milimani Chief Magistrate and criminal court will not be physically accessible due to hearing of presidential petitions as from 26th of August to 5th September,” the memo reads.

The closure directive comes as the law courts premise is currently hosting the Supreme Court which is expected to hear and determine the several presidential petitions lodged on Monday challenging William Ruto’s victory as President-elect in the just concluded elections.

The hearing of the nine petitions lodged at apex court will take place at Milimani Law Court’s Ceremonial Hall.
