The Judiciary has today begun maintenance on its e-filing system with an aim of improving efficiency in its service delivery.
In a statement sent to newsrooms, today, the Judiciary said the maintenance which will begin at 6 pm will cause a downtime up until September 1, 2021, at 6 am.
“We regret the ensuing inconveniences and thank you for your patience and continued support,” the statement said in part.
The statement further stated that the maintenance also follows the gazettement of the new court fee schedule published on July 3, 2021 to take effect on September 1, 2021 and which too they will be updating in the system.
The e-filing system of cases in Nairobi courts was officially launched by former Chief Justice, David Maraga, on July 1, 2020, as a key part of the Judiciary’s efforts, to increase the use of technology in all its functions and achieve higher levels of efficiency and convenience to all stakeholders.
It was also part of the Judiciary’s steps to increase the use of technology in all its functions, to achieve higher levels of efficiency and convenience.
Following the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic in the country in mid-March, the Judiciary has been stepping up efforts to incorporate the use of technology in delivering services to Kenyans.
The courts have been using the ICT platforms, to conduct hearings and deliver judgments and ruling in line with protocols issued by the Ministry of Health, of ensuring social distancing.
